OXFORD, Ohio—Miami University’s synchronized skating program announced its 52-skater roster. The RedHawks boast 10 seniors, including six who skate on the senior team. Miami adds 19 talented newcomers, including 18 freshmen.
The RedHawk senior team is coming off a season where they earned a berth in the ISU World Championships after finishing second at the U.S. National Championships. They captured the Professional Figure Skaters Association Award for Best Performance at the National Championships in March for the second straight year and placed eighth at the World Championships in April.
Miami’s collegiate team capped off its second straight undefeated season by winning its ninth consecutive national title last March. The RedHawks have won 11 straight events dating back to the start of the 2010-11 season. This season, the collegiate team seeks to break a U.S. Figure Skating record for most consecutive national titles.
The junior team is coming off one of its strongest seasons in program history and looks to further that success. Last season, the RedHawks placed first at the Midwestern Championships and finished sixth at the U.S. National Championships.
