All three Miami University synchronized skating teams take to the ice this weekend at the Dr. Richard Porter Classic in Ann Arbor, Mich. It is the season-opening competition for the RedHawk senior, collegiate and junior teams. All three teams have had a solid preseason preparing their programs and are ready to showcase them this weekend.
The senior team skates its short program to “Let It Be”. The RedHawks’ free skate program is themed “Cards”.
The collegiate team's competition program is themed “Moments”. The RedHawk junior team skates its short program to the music “Anything Goes” and “Anything You Can Do I Can Do Better”. The junior team’s free skate program is themed “Dancing Dolls”.
Last season at the Dr. Richard Porter Classic, the RedHawks had a solid showing and look to again open the season on a strong note. Miami's senior and collegiate teams each placed first last season with the junior team posting a third-place finish to tie its best finish at the event.
The RedHawk collegiate team also looks to extend their win streak to 12 straight after going undefeated the last two seasons and capturing three first-place finishes to round out 2010-11. The last time Miami's collegiate team finished lower than first was at the 2010-11 Dr. Richard Porter Classic with a second-place finish.
