The Waterloo Varsity Figure skating Team traveled to Toronto recently to compete in the second competition of the 2010-2011 season. I am on Co-Op this term so I was unable to attend the first day of competition, however I did take a bus up to Toronto for the second day. From what I hear, the results of day 1 were not in our favour and so we had a long way to go in order to come back. After a much stronger Day 2, Waterloo ended up climbing up to a tie for 5th with McGill. It was a little disappointing, since we came 2nd overall at the first competition, but we are confident that we can pull up our socks for the OUA championships.
