Ellie competed for the 2nd year in the Fort Collins Classic and for the 2nd time she placed 2nd! I think 2 is her lucky number. Weeks of practice leading up to this nervous and excited smile from the sidelines. She was curled, sparkled and ready to get things going in this shot 5 minutes before her performance.
A few last minute words from her coach.
A warm up on the ice.
And show time...
Ellie skated to "Here Comes the Sun" by the Beatles and she looked like springtime in her costume. We are thrilled that she has found an activity she loves and enjoys working towards a goal. She is a joy to her coaches, a friend and great sport to the other skaters and has a great balance between her determination to do well and her perspective that skating is to be enjoyed!
