Team Banquet 2018-2019

This past weekend, the MSSC came back together to celebrate the finish of another skating season.

It sure looked like everyone enjoyed being back on the ice after our month break. Our open ice time became the unofficial start to our summer season, with a 10×3 warm up and everything. I loved feeling the ice under my feet and seeing everyone ready to start up again, full speed ahead. I know I’m looking forward to summer and I hope you are too!

Thank you to the planning committee for organizing the event. Thank you Bob for preparing the awards. Thank you coaches for the leadership on the ice.

And finally, a HUGE thank you to the Oregon Ice Rink and On Ice Promotions for all that you do for our club!

Short Track National’s Next Weekend!

It’s been an exciting week of planning for the ST National’s and American Cup coming up next weekend. The Chinese team has arrived and a number of our team have been able to watch their practices.. so cool. Man do they make it look easy.

Volunteers have been working tirelessly  in the background, finalizing logistics, such as marking the track, collecting donations, baking food, and more. Thank you for all of your hard work!

Finally, look at all the cool press we are getting. I’ve seen a local press release and a radio ad so far. Check them out!

Long Track National Championship 2019

This past weekend the Madison speed skaters competed at the US Age Group National Championship. Here’s a few highlights from the event:

  • We are proud to announce Sarge (Dan) Greene as the gold medalist in the 50-54 age group- Making him a 3 times National Champion.  Dan’s races were tight, but he continually proved his dominance at the finish line.
  • Competing in his first ever national championship, Conor Greene took the Junior E group by storm. In an excellent show of skating skill, Conor placed 7th in his age group. He also managed to pull off four personal best times in his events.

  • Isaiah Janisch skated hard in the strong Senior division. His efforts earned his 4th place over all.
  • In perhaps the most competitive group, Junior B men, Calvin Williams fought hard. After making several A finals, Calvin placed 7th.
  • Additionally, with help from a couple skaters from other clubs, Madison Speed Skaters, Isaiah Janisch and Calvin Williams skated to a 6th place finish in the Team Pursuit race.

Thanks to the placement of our four skaters, the Madison Speed Skating Club placed 10th in the Club Championship.
