On November 4 2008 Lexi DeNio of Michigan's Lakeland SC reached the summit of Figure Skating's test structure. 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. Lexi is pictured here with her coaches Hollie Campagna, Irina Kortchach, and Andre Torossian
To every skater that successfully meets this challenge, and especially to my friend Lexi on this special day, Congratulations !!!
