Local figure skaters join University of Guelph varsity team

Emma Carlucci will represent the varsity team in free skate and Simone Thibodeau will compete in dance

Alumni senior figure skaters Emma Carlucci and Simone Thibodeau have been selected by the University of Guelph’s varsity figure skating team. Competition for the 22 spots on the team was fierce. This will be Thibodeau’s second season as a varsity skater.

Both skaters will be members of the University of Guelph’s varsity synchronized skating team. Carlucci will also represent the varsity team in free skate, while Thibodeau will compete in dance.

Varsity figure skating is currently offered only by Ontario University Athletics (OUA), in partnership with Skate Canada. Ten Ontario conference universities compete annually for the top spot at the invitational competitions and the OUA Figure Skating Championships.

The Lake Superior Figure Skating Club board of directors is proud of Carlucci and Thibodeau, and we wish them a fun and successful skating season.
