skating competition

Eastern Great Lakes Regionals

I’m back in Cali after a busy and fun week in East Lansing, Michigan for Regionals. I had a great week filled with friends, family, and of course lots of time spent at the rink. East Lansing is my hometown and competing surrounded by familiar faces made this competition very special. I also spent the week working with my long time coach, Kirsten, which was a lot of fun. I am happy with how well my programs were received by the judges and fans. I chose to do more simple technical programs than usual since I have only been back training jumps for a short time.  I was happy to get regionals under my belt after battling a groin injury for the past couple months. I pulled my groin mid-July and was off the ice for 6 weeks. Now that my groin is feeling better, I am excited to start training at full steam. My younger sisters, Braedyn (Novice) and Giselle (Intermediate), also competed. They both made final rounds and it was fun to be able to watch them skate and cheer them on. I haven’t seen them skate in few months and I was able to see how much they have improved. Now, I am back to training with my new team of coaches, Tammy Gambill and Vincent Restencourt, and training mates. I’m ready for some hard work!img_3748 img_3727
