We all have a lot to be proud of after last weekend’s Midwestern Sectional Championships (aka “Mids”). We had four teams skate incredibly well and a few broke new ground for skating in Missouri.
For those who maybe haven’t heard (and for those who like to hear it again and again), Saint Louis Synergy has two reigning Sectional Champions. The Preliminary and Intermediate teams earned gold medals and became the first ever sectional champs from the state of Missouri. Intermediate’s gold medal qualified them for Nationals. In addition, our Novice team took the Pewter medal and qualified for Nationals as well. This also marks a first. Our Intermediate and Novice team qualifications for Nationals mark the first time two teams from the same Missouri club qualified together. Finally, our Juvenile team had a great skate, their best of the year, in an incredibly difficult division and finished 9th.
Our club showing at “Mids” was a team effort. The team that I am talking about includes dedicated skaters, great coaches, and committed families. So, thank you. Thanks to coaches, parents, and skaters for all of your hard work, your willingness to sacrifice for the good of the team, and your devotion to the sport of synchronized skating. This is not a sport for the faint of heart.
Now, on with the rest of a great season!Laura Arnold
