Skaters salchow to second

What comes to mind when envisioning a large slab of ice, eccentric costumes and people performing majestic spins?

If your answer is figure skating, you hit the nail on the head.

The Western Mustangs figure skating team placed second at the Queen's Invitational on Friday.

According to head coach Alma Moir, the Mustangs met all expectations. "We were aiming to finish in the top three, so a second place finish is great. I was very pleased with the team's performance – most of our skates were strong," she said.

Kristin Rowe and Rachel Smith finished in first place in the solid similar pair category. Rowe and Smith have made quite the name for themselves, dominating the category last year and continuing their run this year in Kingston.

The youth movement was also on exhibition. Rookie Laura Boehmer won the gold solo dance category, while rookie Kristyn Kliene brought home the silver in the senior silver singles category.

Filling out the medal tally was Danielle Holdsworth's bronze medal performance in the senior silver solo dance category and a silver captured by the dynamic duo of Nancy Ford and Liz Love in the senior silver similar dance category.

Moir said the squad has extremely lofty expectations for the coming season. "Queen's has dominated Ontario University Athletics the past few years. But when the group events are incorporated into the OUA finals at the end of the year, I am confident we can come away victorious."
