On Jun 21 2012 Rachael Henninger of Michigan's Onyx-Suburban SA passed her Senior FS Test. I had the privilege of judging this test, as well as most of the other tests she's taken since she started skating. It is such a great pleasure to watch someone grow, both as as a person and as a skater, and I am glad that I was able to witness Rachael's capstone test, as well as her progress towards it.
Passing the Senior Freeskating test and the 15 tests that must precede it is a tremendously difficult task that requires years and years of dedicated work, and a great deal of skill. Only a small percentage of skaters can claim this great prize, and very few among the general public can claim any other accomplishment of comparable effort.
Congratulations to Rachael on this special day !!!!
