Video With Miami Junior and Senior Skaters
After nearly a month since their last competition, Miami University’s senior and junior synchronized skating teams return to the ice this weekend at the Foot of the Lake Classic in Fond du Lac, Wis., which also is the Junior World Qualifier.
Miami’s senior team is coming off a first-place finish at the Dr. Richard Porter Classic in the RedHawks season-opening competition Dec. 7-8. Although it is just a four-team field in the senior division at the Foot of the Lake Classic, it is packed with some of the nation’s top senior teams. The senior team skates its short program to “Let It Be”. The RedHawks’ free skate program is themed “Cards”.
The RedHawk junior team is coming off a sixth-place finish at the Dr. Richard Porter Classic. Miami got off to a slow start, placing eighth in the short program, but had a strong free skate where the RedHawks finish fifth to jump two spots in the final standings. Miami 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 year, Miami’s junior team placed fifth at the Junior World Qualifier. This year’s field includes 13 teams. The RedHawks’ best Junior World Qualifying finish was third in 2007-08.
