Caraline Herman, a student at William Tennent High School, is in her first season with the Team Image Junior team. Caraline’s team came in sixth during the junior event at the 2019 U.S. Synchronized Skating Championships. Based on the virtue of the team’s successes over the course of this season and the last season, have been named to Team USA for the 2019–2020 season.
This year they will be representing the United States internationally at the Zagreb Snowflakes Trophy in Zagreb Croatia from January 17–19, 2020. Based on their success at the international competitions and the 2020 U.S. Synchronized Skating Championships in Providence, Rhode Island in February, the team could qualify for the ISU World Junior Synchronized Skating Championships 2020 in Nottingham, Great Britain in March.
U.S. Figure Skating is the National Governing Body (NGB) for figure skating in the United States, as recognized by the U.S. Olympic and Paralympic Committee and International Skating Union. NGB oversees the qualifying competitive pipeline and eventual selection of athletes to represent the United States at international competitions, including the World Championships and Olympic Winter Games.
As a competitor in synchronized skating, athletes are members of a team where 12–20 athletes skate together, performing intricate footwork while executing difficult formations. Teams spend many hours training with the ultimate goal of winning medals in sectional, national and international levels.
Centennial School District would like to congratulate Caraline for all her success and wish her luck and support for her bright future.
