October 9, 2012 : Liberty University Club Sports

More than 120 skaters from 14 colleges will compete in the Eastern Intercollegiate figure skating competition on Saturday and Sunday at Liberty University’s LaHaye Ice Center.

Liberty last hosted the United States Figure Skating Association regional competition in 2010. The event is free to the public.

“We feel so blessed to be able to compete at our home rink again,” said Tatiana Payne, Liberty figure skating head coach. “We couldn't be more excited to welcome the figure skating teams from other universities coming from locations along the East Coast.”

Seven skaters from Liberty’s team will compete: sophomore Katie Scuilla, junior Kelly Pollock, senior Nicole Hofmeister, and freshmen Fantasia Remonvil, Jenn Goette, Kelsey Reischl, and Amanda Delphia.

They will join skaters from Duke University, Penn State University, Cornell University, Boston University, Johns Hopkins University, East Carolina University, Fordham University, Northeastern University, Sacred Heart University, Towson University, New York University, Dartmouth College, and the University of Delaware.

The skaters will compete in more than 30 individual disciplines over the course of the two-day competition.

“It should be a great event with a lot of skating talent,” Payne said. “This is definitely something that people from the community would love to come and watch.”

Competition begins Saturday at 8 a.m. with the preliminary men’s free skate. View the full schedule.
