Lucy Ward, Y7, won her skating competition on Friday 22nd April! She got a massive score of 30.62 overall, with a technical score of 14.37, meaning she has exceeded the (technical) qualifying mark of 12.5, so she will be competing at The British Championships in December!
Lucy`s moved to Level 6, so will miss the next competition in May to give her and her coach time to add the new required elements and extra 30 seconds on to her routine. She will next compete at Deeside and Coventry, which are both in June.
In the Easter holidays, Lucy competed at The Blackpool Ice Skating Festival – gaining 2nd place in her level 5 class. This was the first time skating a new routine so Lucy was very pleased to be placed 2nd out of 19 skaters! It was a nice skate but not perfect, however she still managed to exceeded the score needed to pass the next level, so after her April competition she will be competing at level 6 with a longer programme of 3 minutes. She was only 0.64 off of qualifying mark for the British championships, which with a good skate next week we are all hoping she achieves.
