Skated personal best at Regionals.

Figure Skating

Finally returned home after Regionals. Keara competed on Thursday but didn’t qualify for final round. She placed 5th in her group and they only took the top 2 from each group. Regardless she ended the season with her BEST performance yet!! You can view her performance here.. https://youtu.be/tqFOVBcvq2Y

She received a 1st and a 3rd from 2 out of 5 coaches which is awesome! She didn’t trust herself when landing her double Toe so she 2 footed it. Even though she’s landed that jump a million times!! Oh well.. here is to a new season and finishing this one off with her personal best!

Elements in program in order:

Axel, combo spin, double salchow-loop jump, axel-1/2 loop-flip jump, step sequence, double toe jump, double salchow, single spin.

Comment below she’d love to hear what you thought!! Here are a few pics from his week.

Results from competition she’s on page 7.

Hard to believe my last post was so long ago! Where did summer go? We’ve been getting back into a school routine so that’s part of the blog silence. The other part is…life is crazy at times. Feels like I blinked and summer was gone!

I’ll be posting some back vids and pics but this is the latest and greatest. I shared on my personal page and neglected to share here!! This is from Friday… Keara is currently getting ready for the 2019 Upper Great Lakes Regionals in Peoria IL Oct 3-7 2018.

Got the best text today from Keara’s coach! Gotta love the spontaneous ones 😂 she landed double loop and double flip!! Only doubles left are 2 Lutz, 2 axel!!
