PCA Student Caroline Cherry Skates on the World Stage
Caroline Cherry is currently a senior at PCA. Outside of PCA she is a member of the Lexettes, a junior level synchronized skating team and part of the Hayden Synchronized Skating organization based out of Lexington, MA.
Caroline has been skating since she was 4 years old. She is now in her 10th season on a synchronized skating team and this is her 1st year as a member of the Lexettes. The discipline and work habits she has formed in school at PCA have carried over into her sport. She practices with the team 3-4 times per week and on her own with her private coach 2-3 times per week. She works hard and is dedicated, sacrificing time with her friends to do this, but says it’s all been worth it and that she has learned a great many lessons that will serve her well in life. She is hoping to continue to participate in college.
Caroline’s team recently competed against 12 other teams from across the country at the Junior World Qualifier in Fond Du Lac, WI. The top two teams qualified to represent the United States at Junior Worlds being held in Neuchatel, Switzerland in March. Caroline’s team placed first and will be going as Team USA 1 and a team from Chicago, IL known as Chicago Jazz will go as Team USA 2.
The team was selected by US Figure Skating at the beginning of the season to represent the USA at the French Cup in Rouen, France at the end of January. They will also be heading to Nationals in Colorado Springs, CO at the end of February before heading off to Junior Worlds in Switzerland.
