    Juneau, Alaska (KINY) - The Juneau Skating Club took second place at the 2022 Ice Sports Industry Winter Classic in San Jose, California, in late February, with 26 skaters competing in 85 events over the two day competition.

      All skaters contributed to the placing as points were awarded based on the results of each skater, ranking from a maximum of five points for first place through one point for fifth place in individual events.

      JSC manager Nicchia Leamer said 18 teams were competing in hundreds of competitions and some JSC skaters skated up to five events in a day.

      Group events can earn higher points up to 25 points for a first place finish.

      JSC’s Team Forget-Me-Not synchronized skating team accomplished a first place finish at the competition.

      The Juneau Skating Club will next host a live show at Treadwell Arena on April 1 at 7 p.m. and two live shows on April 2 and April 3 at 3 p.m. and 7 p.m.

      The 2022 Spring Show is called “Evolution of Music: Decades of Mixtape.” Tickets are available at juneauskatingclub.org.
