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.
