Raider wins Bronze Medal in Sochi,Russia

Daniel Eaton, a Sophomore student at the Auburn Hills Campus, along with his partner, Alexandra Aldridge, secured the bronze medal at the Junior Grand Prix (JGP) of Figure Skating Finals.  The JGP Final brings together the top six Ice Dance Teams in the World, and was held in Sochi, Russia last week.   Their score of 83.59 points for the “Fiddler on the Roof” free dance represented a season high.
Eaton said “We wanted to come out today and show the judges, technical panel and crowd that we are a strong team technically and emotionally. We can have strong levels and a high performance. I think we accomplished that today.”  Alexandra Stepanova and Ivan Bukin earned the gold medal, while France’s Gabriella Papadakis and Guillaume Cizeron earned silver in their JGP Final debut.”
Our next competition is the 2013 United States Figure Skating Championships in Omaha, NE the end of January.  The top three finishers at the US Nationals will represent the United States at the World Junior Championships in Milan, Italy, the end of February.
