Personal Best for Dolensky at 2016 Prudential U.S. Figure Skating Championships






After finishing in 14th place at last year's U.S. Championships, Timothy Dolensky's coaches said he was more prepared for Nationals this year than ever before, and his performance proved it. After beating his personal best short program score by almost 10 points, Tim ended up in fifth place after the short. Skating in the last group for the Senior Men's free skate, Tim found himself among some impressive company - Aaron, Miner, Chen and Rippon. Tim placed seventh in the final, placing him in seventh place overall.


Great job Tim and Congratulations!

Roberts and Cummings Win Bronze at the 2016 Prudential U.S. Figure Skating Championships






Making the switch from men's singles to pairs has paid off for Jabe Roberts. A short six months ago Jabe made the move to Minnesota to train with Berit Cummings of the Lake Minnetonka FSC. The intermediate pairs team made their national debut at the 2016 Prudential U.S. Figure Skating Championships in St. Paul Minnesota where they placed third, taking home the bronze medal.





Congratulations Jabe and Berit!
