Representing Skating Club of Southern Connecticut (SCSC), Darien resident Brooke Ferris captured gold for her individual preliminary test track performance.

The 2013 Greenwich Town Competition was held on Sunday at the Dorothy Hamill Skating Rink in Greenwich. The event, sponsored by the Windy Hill Skating Club and Town of Greenwich Parks & Recreation, was made possible by US Figure Skating.

Other SCSC members from Stamford were wholeheartedly pleased to be awarded a medal at the Test Track Pre- Preliminary category. Those skaters included Kathryn Berger (silver) and Lily Fine (bronze). Spirited 6-year-old Chloe Gerace also received gold for her Basic Skills 7 performance.

These skaters also compete together as team members of the Southern CT Synchronized Skating. Ferris started skating four years ago and skates seven days a week, including working at the ice rink helping to teach group lessons.

All skaters are coached by Val Legutko. The next competition for Ferris and some of her fellow skate-mates might be the Southern CT Basic Skills scheduled for March at Terry Connors rink.
