Figure Skaters Complete Competition & Test Sessions


FARIBAULT, MINN. - A competition over the weekend and U.S. Figure Skating Test Session on Wednesday made for a busy week within the Shattuck-St. Mary’s Figure Skating Center of Excellence.

Team Sabres competed in the Autumn Open in Burnsville, MN over the weekend. Several skaters overcame adversities to achieve personal best performances. For many, this was the first time competing in a different state let alone a different country. The skaters conducted themselves with maturity and respect as they earned 19 medals in total (nine gold, three silver, three bronze, and four pewter).

On Wednesday, a number of SSM figure skaters participated in the first test session of the season. A special congratulations to Katarina Koehler ‘20 who passed her Senior (Gold) level test!
