The Great Neck Park District’s Synchronized Skating Program got off to a fantastic start the weekend of Dec. 6 and 7. The three teams collectively earned three medals at the Terry Conners Synchronized Skating Competition in Stamford, Connecticut.
The newly formed Ice Pops, the youngest team in attendance, delighted the crowd earning a pewter medal. The Icicles came home with a bronze medal at their season opener and the veteran Icettes Team was awarded the gold medal for their division.
“It was an excellent start to the 2015 season. All of the teams skated beyond our expectations and placed even higher than some more competitive programs” says Head Coach Audra Smith.
“Congratulations to all the skaters and parents who have made this program such a success,” said team manager Carole Liotti.
The Synchronized Skating Teams are now gearing up to compete in the Lake Placid ISI Team Championships on Jan. 10, 2015.
