We celebrated the end of our 2017-2018 season! We honored five skaters for their outstanding achievements on the team and recognized our graduating seniors!
The Northernettes competed at their first US Synchronized Skating National Championships in Portland, Oregon! The team put out two clean skates and their best performances of the season. In a competitive field of Junior teams from across the country, the team finished 10th- but just 6 points out of a 7th place finish. The Northernettes are looking forward to the next season and building off their momentum from their inaugural season!
Northernettes Junior had a successful weekend at the US Synchronized Skating Midwestern Sectional Championships in Wichita, Kansas! The team earned a seasons best in the short program and qualified for the US Synchronized Skating National Championships in Portland, OR February 22-24.
Our third competition of the season brought us to Chicago for Synchro Illinois! Although it took us all day to get to Chicago (snow and weather delays at the airport!) the Northernettes had a fantastic competition weekend. The team had two solid skates and even increased their long program score by 11 points from the Dr. Porter Classic in December! The Northernettes are back home this week and hard at work preparing for the Midwestern Sectional Synchronized Skating Championships in Kansas next weekend!
The Northernettes chose Spot's Last Stop, a non-profit canine rescue located in the Twin Cities, as their service project this Holiday season! Spot's Last Stop matches local families with homeless canines in need of forever homes by following an adoption process that makes it easy to adopt a homeless dog in need. We collected supplies for foster families and got to meet some of the dogs in the foster program! Check out their website at spotslaststop.org for more information!
Northernettes Junior had a successful competition debut at the Dr. Porter Classic in Ann Arbor, Michigan last weekend! The team skated two great programs and in a tough field of Junior teams from across the country, the team finished 7th of 9 teams. They are excited to get back to work in preparation for the Maplewood Synchro Classic in two weeks!
