Liberty University hosts figure skating competition

 

 
Students from all over the East Coast hit the ice Saturday for a figure skating competition in Lynchburg.

The skates are sharpened. The routines down pat.

Colleges and universities from up and down the coast came to Liberty for a Sectional competition, one of two before nationals.

This is the first year for Liberty to have a figure skating team, much less hold one of the biggest competitions of their season... doing so by outbidding other schools.

Liberty's figure skating director, Tatiana Gomez, told News 7 she never thought she'd see this happen. "For liberty to be such an unknown school but hold such a large competition, it really is exciting."
