Figure Skating Club foursome wins sectionals

Four members of the Bloomington Ice Garden Figure Skating Club (FSC) qualified for the Midwestern Sectional Singles Final for figure skating in Dallas, Texas. Their next stop could be the U.S. Figure Skating Championships in Greensboro, N.C. Qualifications began in October during the Upper Great Lakes Regional Challenge. More than 200 skaters competed, and of the 12 FSC skaters taking part, four skaters advanced to the Midwestern Sectional.

“We are so proud of our young skaters,” Skate School Coordinator Rene Gelecinskyj said. “This is a huge accomplishment for them and our club. We have many skaters advancing and the competition is steep.”
