Lily Zieg was named the preliminary girls’ silver medalist, competing against 28 other skaters.

Bianca Dickson earned the title of adult gold silver medalist.

Riley Shore placed sixth in the novice ladies’ competition, an extremely competitive event with many skaters working to move on to the junior and senior divisions.

Senior level skaters can compete for a spot on the U.S. Olympic team.

Rebecca Johnson defended her title and is the adult gold ladies’ champion. This is the third year Johnson has won this title.

Ashley Pugh competed against 47 other skaters and was named the pre-preliminary girls’ pewter medalist.
