Happy Valley skater heads to national competition
Two students from Happy Valley who attend Oregon Connections Academy competed in a semifinal competition from Nov. 13-16 in an effort to win spots at the U.S. Figure Skating Association Championships in January 2020.
Samuel Mindra, a junior, earned a first-place award in the Novice Men's division at sectionals and regionals. Fifth-grader Annika Chao placed third in the Juvenile Girls category at the NW Pacific Regional Singles Challenge in October.
Chao did not advance past sectionals, but Mindra will compete in the Junior Men's Division at the Championships in January.
