Commonwealth Avenue didn’t close down. There was no parade. And no professional teams came knocking to offer lucrative contracts. But that doesn’t mean the members of Boston University’s figure skating club aren’t national champions.
The club, twenty-three members strong, traveled to Colorado Springs in mid-April for the U.S. Figure Skating Intercollegiate Team Championships, and for the first time came home with the big prize.
“It was amazing, because everyone skated so well,” says Schuyler Eldridge (ENG’12).
While the team’s celebration was more modest than that of BU’s other championship skating team, the victory was no less sweet for the figure skaters.
“We’ve got our trophy,” says Sarah Stone (SAR’12). “And we’ve got our pride.”
