Springfield Skaters Start the New Year with a Bang

Local skaters take the ice at Manhattan's Bryant Park.

On Jan. 5, Precisely Right Synchronized Skating Team's junior team, consisting of 20 high school-aged girls from the tri state area, skated in “Sing & Skate Against Breast Cancer” with Winter Olympians, Kimmie Meisner, Emily Hughes, Nicole Bobek and Jo Jo Starbuck at CitiPond, Bryant Park in New York City.  

Precisely Right was honored to be asked to skate for such a great cause with these Olympians.

While the junior team exhibited in NYC, the Pre-Juvenile (including  FMG seventh graders at Jessica Kaplan and Marissa Steiner) and Open Adult teams took on the fierce competition at the Colonial Classic Synchronized Competition in Lowell, MA. Both teams skated beautifully and the judges agreed as the pre-juvenile team was awarded the silver medal in a very competitive group.

In addition to these events, the pre- juvenile and beginner teams exhibited on Dec. 29 at the annual Sno-ball Classic at Mennen Arena to an enthusiastic crowd. The Sno-ball Classic is always special to the skaters as they get to perform locally for family and friends.

Coming up for Precisely Right is the Eastern Sectional Synchronized Competition for all teams except Beginner. Over 2400 skaters will meet up in Lake Placid for the event. Mennen Arena and Precisely Right hosted in 2009.  

The Beginner Team will make their competition debut at the Winter Escapade in South Mountain later this month.
