2010-2011 Season!

Hello everyone!  After a short hiatus, we are back to blogging!

OUSST is skating to a "Weather" theme this year, with a combination of Rosemary Clooney's "A Foggy Day in London Town", Gene Kelley's "Singin' In the Rain" and the Glee version of the Barbara Streisand song, "Don't Rain on my Parade".

Our costumes are yellow raincoat-esque wrap dresses, that really pop on the ice.

We started the season off with our normal season opener at the Mountain State Synchro Skate in Charleston, W. Va..  We didn't have anyone to compete against in our division, but we used this competition as a critique for prepare us for the rest of the season - we got some great feedback!

Next, we returned to Athens for the first week of December, during winter intersession for a week of training for the Dr. Richard Porter Synchronized Skating Classic.  The work paid off, because we got THIRD PLACE!!
3rd place at Dr. Porters!

The third place finish was a huge success for us, a competitive career high!

We have since skated at two hockey games, and will be skating THIS Saturday night at the OU Hockey v. Indiana Hoosiers game at 7:30p.m. (To buy tickets, click here!!!)

We are gearing up for Midwestern Synchronized Skating Sectionals in Rochester, MN February 2-6, and Tri-States in Bowling Green, Ohio February 11-12.

We encourage your feedback, and will keep you updated!
