Valley Christian Junior High's own sixth grader, Anugraha Pillai, has had a spectacular National Solo Dance Ice Skating season! While finishing in second place in the Pacific Coast Championships for US Figure Skating - Juvenile Combined Dance Category and Champion for the Bronze Pattern Dance, she earned her spot in the National Solo Dance Final. What a great and remarkable achievement this was for Anugraha!
Qualifying for the Solo Dance Final is a tremendous accomplishment; skaters must either place in the top six skaters at their level or in their section, or win three competitions. Through the year, nearly 500 skaters took part in the Series of qualifying events. When the Finals commenced in late September, approximately 170 athletes from around the country gathered at the Yarmouth Ice Club in Hyannis, Maine. Anugraha had a fantastic competition! She finished in the eighth position for the Bronze Pattern Dance category and 13th in the Juvenile Combined Dance category.
We're so very proud of you, Anugraha!
