SCSF Adults Represent at Pacific Coast Adult Sectionals
Most people don’t think of packing their ice skates when they head to Las Vegas. But our adult skater contingent did just that in early March as they made their way to the 2015 Pacific Coast Adult Sectional Championships, held at the SoBe Ice Arena in North Las Vegas, NV.
The SCSF, represented by Christine Castillo, Lisa Chao, Gwenaelle Delaplanche, Alexei Folger, Ted Gradman, Celeste Kohaya, Boon Lee, Darren Lee, Kymberle Mcelwee and Elizabeth Risberg, made a strong showing in events ranging from Pre-Bronze to Masters Intermediate-Novice. They were joined during the three-day competition by coaches Suzy Jackson, Louis Vachon and Robin White.
“One of the greatest things about competitions – besides the actual skating, of course – is being able to spend time with skating friends from other clubs,” says Elizabeth Risberg, who also is the Pacific Section Vice Chair for the U.S. Figure Skating Adult Committee. “Adults are all very supportive of one another. We know the particular challenges we face in order to just skate, let alone compete at a Sectional event. I’m really proud of all of our adult skaters, and we’re proud to represent the club!”
And, to show that what happens in Vegas doesn’t always stay there, many of these competitors –plus several other SCSF adult skaters – will bring their skating performances to the 2015 U.S. Figure Skating Adult Championships this April in Salt Lake City, Utah. We’ll keep you posted on the results!
