If you were in Town Square last weekend, you may have seen a very distinctive group of girls dressed in black unitards. I had many visitors asking, “Who are they and what are they doing here?”
They are very accomplished young women members of the Hayden Synchronized Skating teams and they have been training right here at the Waterville Valley Ice Arena.
The Lexettes (Junior) have been in Waterville Valley since Aug. 14 and depart today. The Lexettes won a Bronze Medal at the US National Championships at the Junior level in 2012. They look forward to representing the United States in the Spring Cup in Milan, Italy this year.
The Haydenettes (Senior) were in Waterville Valley from Aug. 9-14). They became 20-time US National Champions at the Senior level and went on to win the Bronze Medal for the third straight year at the World Synchronized Skating Championships.
The IceMates (Novice) arrive in Waterville Valley today and will be in town until Aug. 23. They won their third straight US National Championship in 2012 at the Novice level by setting a record score of 81.48.
YOU can enjoy some skating at the indoor ice skating arena every day this week from 1-3 p.m. Stay connected to the Ice Arena on Facebook.
