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
Molly Rose Merkert (Senior): Pre-Juvenile Ladies Free Skate: 2nd
Arielle Gordon (Sophomore): Preliminary Pattern Dance: 1st
Isabel Leadbeater (Sophomore): Junior Ladies Short Program: 3rd
Angel Bai (Sophomore): Preliminary Ladies Free Skate: 4th
Ana Musto (Freshman): Juvenile Ladies Free Skate: 3rd
Anna Li (Freshman): Preliminary Pattern Dance: 2nd
Hollis Peterson (Freshman): Pre-Preliminary Ladies Free Skate: 4th
CCFS Low Team: 6th
CCFS Mid Team: 4th
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!
