Published DateTILTON — Maggie DeVoy of Sanbornton represented the Magic Blades Figure Skating Club at the Burlington Skating Club's annual Basic Skills Competition on January 19. She competed in the Pre-Preliminary Test Track program and took gold for first place skating to "The Blood of Cu Chulainn," an Irish tune. Her program was limited to ninety seconds to complete the required number of jumps and spins.
DeVoy, 11, is a 6th grade honor student at Winnisquam Middle School. Maggie initially learned to skate on Sunday nights with the Sanbornton Recreation Department's skating program at Tilton School when she was five, and began skating with Magic Blades the following year, when she was six years old.
Magic Blades operates out of the Tilton School Ice Arena from September through February. The Magic Blades skaters perform in an annual exhibition, "Magic On Ice" which will be free and open to the public on Saturday, February 16 at the Tilton School Ice Arena.
