Club Sports: Figure skaters tie for fifth at Mid-American

Special to The Observer | Tuesday, January 26, 2010

This weekend the Notre Dame Figure Skating Team tied for fifth at the Mid-America championships in Fraser, Mich.

In an increasingly competitive division of 13 well-established open collegiate programs, the Irish skaters improved their rank from the Porter Classic in spite of a minor fall during the program.

The team was proud of its performance, having had just three practices prior to competition due to winter break. The group has a goal of peaking with a top-three finish at their most important competition of the year, the Midwestern Sectionals, in Cedar Rapids, Iowa, in two weeks.
