Tahoe Snowflakes place 3rd at Shamrock Skate competition
SAN FRANCISCO — The Tahoe Snowflakes synchronized skating team traveled to the Bay Area earlier this month — and represented South Lake Tahoe well in competition. The Snowflakes placed third in Shamrock Skate on March 14, an event held at Yerba Buena Ice Skating and Bowling Center and sanctioned by the Ice Skating Institute.
Tahoe finished third in competition behind host Yerba Buena and second-place Vacaville Ice Sports. Two of the Snowflakes’ synchronized skating teams (S.O.S. senior team and Volulez-Vous youth team) and the all-hands production (ABBA Medley) placed first in their respective categories, while its Super Trouper junior team placed second.
The Snowflakes also fielded a skating ensemble, two couples and many solos — all of which placed first or second in their events. Coaches Susan Campbell-Howe and Alex Furrer were at the event preparing skaters to take the ice, judging other events, preparing props and keeping the children safe.
The Tahoe Snowflakes skate locally at South Lake Tahoe Ice Arena, operated by Tahoe Sports and Entertainment. The coaches wished to thank all the skaters for representing Tahoe so well, the parents and families for their support, and congratulate all on a job well done.
