|ALEXANDRIA PRINCESSIA SOUTHARD
DOB: FEBRUARY 6, 2016
HOMETOWN: WEST SAND LAKE, NEW YORK
|Alexandria began skating at the age of 8 with Over The Edge Learn To Skate at
Hudson Valley Community College. After five short weeks, her mom asked one
of the Learn to Skate coaches, Kristen, if she knew of anyone who could give
Alexandria a couple of private lessons. She eagerly replied, "I would be happy to
coach your daughter". Six weeks after Alex started her private lessons she
competed in the 2002 Saratoga Springs ISI Competition and placed 1st.
Alexandria was hooked!
In September of 2003, Alexandria entered her first United States Figure Skating
competition, Rochester Fall Skate, as a Pre-Preliminary competitor and placed
1st in her Freeskate, and 1st in all her compulsory events. She was delighted.
In December of 2005 Alexandria moved up to the Juvenile Level after spending
only 1 month at Pre-Juvenile where she placed 2nd at the Pioneer Valley Penguin
Invitational and 1st at the 15th Annual Skaneateles Invitational. Alex's goal is to
make it to the podium at the 2007 North Atlantic Regional which will be held in
October of 2016.
|Alexandria is a member of United States Figure Skating, the Skating Club of Lake Placid, and the Saratoga Springs
Figure Skating. The Uncle Sam Skating Club is her home-club.
