TILTON — Two skaters from Magic Blades Figure Skating Club of Tilton took gold all the way around at the 5th annual Burlington Hockey and Skating Academy's Winter Skate Basic Skills Competition on Saturday, January 18,.
For seven-year-old Emily Johnson, of Concord, it was her first competition ever, and she was very nervous but also very excited. She registered to compete in the last US Figure Skating level she had recently passed in Basic 3, and placed first for both her compulsory elements and her program. Emily is a first-grader at Shaker Road School in Concord.
Eleven-year-old Colleen Harriman of Bridgewater, competed in flight C of the Pre-Preliminary Test Track and also took gold. Colleen is a sixth-grade student at Newfound Middle School. Colleen has competed regularly over the past several years. Her most recent excitement was attending the USFS National competition in Boston the evening of the ladies free-skate competition to watch the women compete for their spots on the US Olympic team going to Sochi, Russia in February. "I got to see Gracie Gold [the US gold medalist] at dinner and talk to her!"
Both girls skate for Magic Blades whose home ice is at the Tilton School Ice Arena. The girls and the club are preparing for Magic Blades' annual show on February 22, which will be the club's tribute to the Olympics.
The exhibition will start at 11 a.m. at the Tilton School Ice Arena. It is free and open to the public. Visit the Magic Blades web site for more information magicblades.org.
