Team del Sol Seniors at Nationals

Coming off a silver medal performance at the Trophy D’Ecosse in Scotland, Team del Sol Senior skated to a season’s best score at this year’s U.S. Synchronized Skating Nationals in Rockford, IL. After an on-ice injury, the team, skating 15 skaters, rallied to earn a 6th place finish in the short program with a score of 43.43. In the Freeskate, the team, at full strength, solidified their 6th place finish with a season’s best combined score of 131.57 which included positive GOEs for their creative intersection and ending creative element. This is an improvement over last year’s 7th place finish at Nationals. The Senior team would like to thank the club for their continuing support of synchronized skating.

2017 US Figure Skating Nationals

Ashley Cohen and Camden Rider made San Diego Figure Skating Club proud this morning with their strong performance in the two-part Juvenile Pattern Dance competition at US National Championships in Kansas City.  They earned an 8th place finish among the twelve top Juvenile teams in the country.

Cohen and Rider started strong with the sharp and clean 14-step, which made the judges take notice of the team, and earning a 10th place finish in that first pattern dance. They then followed with an elegant and smooth Willow Waltz, for which they jumped ahead several positions with a 7th place finish, giving them an overall combined pattern dance placement of 8th.


San Diego Ice Arena Ice Dance Coach Jon Nichols and Geoff Varner are accompanying Cohen and Rider on their second trip to US National Championships.

Cohen and Rider compete in the Freedance portion of the event Sunday at 8 am (CT). Watch live on IceNetwork at www.IceNetwork.com.  Check out Ashley and Camden on the icenetwork.com website as the picture for the event:
