The synchronized skating season concluded in Kalamazoo, MI at the US Synchronized Skating Championships. Some teams endured more than 24 hours of travel time due to snow storms in the mid-west and battled various injuries and still delivered respectable performances:
Senior Team del Sol earned 7th
Novice Team del Sol earned 10th
Intermediate Team del Sol earned 9th
Congratulations to all the coaches, skaters, managers and families for another great season.
