Team del Sol Seniors at Nationals

Coming off a silver medal performance at the Trophy D’Ecosse in Scotland, Team del Sol Senior skated to a season’s best score at this year’s U.S. Synchronized Skating Nationals in Rockford, IL. After an on-ice injury, the team, skating 15 skaters, rallied to earn a 6th place finish in the short program with a score of 43.43. In the Freeskate, the team, at full strength, solidified their 6th place finish with a season’s best combined score of 131.57 which included positive GOEs for their creative intersection and ending creative element. This is an improvement over last year’s 7th place finish at Nationals. The Senior team would like to thank the club for their continuing support of synchronized skating.
