Happy Thanksgiving from the CC Figure Skating Team!

November 20, 2018

This year we have a lot to be thankful for, as our crowdfunding page just passed $1,800 with the help of our amazing donors!

Any size of donation has a huge impact for our team, and brings down the out-of-pocket cost of traveling to California for our skaters. Financial accessibility is a huge priority for us; we want everyone to have the ability to participate fully in the team regardless of their financial situation, and the donations we receive help to make that goal possible.

 

After the excitement of Tiger Challenge dies down, the team was able to relax and finish out our 3rd block classes strong. We are currently on fall break, but are looking forward to being back on the ice when school resumes next Monday. Time flies and soon enough we will be gearing up for our next competition, Ride the Tide 2019, on February 2nd and 3rd, hosted by University of California, San Diego.

 

We are so thankful for all of the support our friends and family have shown for our individual skating endeavors over the years, and for the CC team as a whole. Happy holidays!

Tiger Challenge Success!

Thank you so much to everyone who has donated so far! We appreciate your support.

 

Tiger Challenge Update

Over the weekend of November 3th - 4th, CCFS hosted 14 schools for our annual home competition, the Tiger Challenge. Despite fierce competition, CC finished in 5th place overall, medaling in 12 events! This means we are within striking distance of qualifying for the 2019 Intercollegiate National Championships. The top four teams after all three Intercollegiate Competitions qualify, so to remain competitive and to achieve our dream, the entire team needs to make the trip to UC San Diego and UCLA next semester. We need your help in order to purchase flights, lodging, and a rental van for 13 people. We want to make sure no team members have to pay out of pocket.

 

Here are our fabulous results from Tiger Challenge:

 

Julia Gilman (Senior, Co-Captain): Senior Ladies Championship: 4th

                                                           Senior Ladies Short Program: 3rd

Megan Viozzi (Senior, Co-Captain): Intermediate Pattern Dance: 2nd

                                                            Intermediate Solo Dance: 2nd

                                                            Intermediate Ladies Short Program: 3rd

CCFS High Team: 4th

 

Everyone on the team also competed in Team Maneuvers events, which are unique to collegiate figure skating. Marco Berg (Sophomore) and Rosie Smith (Freshman) made their CCFS debuts in Team Maneuvers.

 

We are so proud of everyone’s performances! We were especially grateful to have Peggy Fleming Jenkins and her husband Greg Jenkins in attendance to cheer us on, as well as CC’s president, Jill Tiefenthaler.

 

With your support, we can get the team two steps closer to qualifying for nationals! Go Tigers!
