In her final skating competition of the year in Moorhead, Minn., on Feb. 13 and 14 she brought home a third place in the com- pulsory event and a first place in the free skate. The compulsory event involved five re- quired elements on half ice with no music. The free skate, she said, is like you see on TV where the skaters perform to music. In either competition she beat out eight other skaters to place. She has been skating in the Park River Figure Skaters program since she was five and this summer she started skating with the Grand Forks program to get a little more ice time in her year.
