Monday, September 16, 2013

Kirsten Moore-Towers of St. Catharines, Ont., and Dylan Moscovitch of Toronto successfully defended their pairs title on Friday at the U.S. International Figure Skating Classic.

Moore-Towers and Moscovitch totalled 201.30 points, with Caydee Denney and John Coughlin of the U.S. second at 188.47. Americans Tarah Kayne and Daniel O’Shea were third.

“We made it exciting with some trouble on our last lift but Dylan showed great strength to pull us through,” said Moore-Towers, fourth with her partner last season at the world championships. “It’s only the second time we had performed this program and our performance bodes well for the rest of the season.”

Paige Lawrence of Kennedy, Sask., and Rudi Swiegers of Kipling, Sask., were fifth.

Max Aaron led a U.S. medal sweep in the men’s singles. Andrei Rogozine of Richmond Hill, Ont., was sixth.

In women’s singles, the U.S. holds the top-three spots with Amelie Lacoste of Delson, Que., fourth.

Ice dancers Meryl Davis and Charlie White of the U.S., were first after the short dance with Kaitlyn Weaver and Andrew Poje of Waterloo, Ont., second. Nicole Orford of Burnaby, B.C., and Thomas Williams of Okotoks, Alta., are in third place.
