the 10th anniversary of its first trip to Worlds in Croatia in 2004. “We are resilient,” Peterson said. “I think this sport teaches a lot of life skills. One of them is you go for a goal, and if you don’t get it, you go harder the next time. We’ll never give up.” Te Starlights, who burst onto the senior scene with a pewter-med- al finish in 2010, broke through to claim the bronze medal by flying over Miami University with their free skate to Disney’s Dinosaur movie. “Tey are over-the-moon excit-


ed,” Starlights coach Heather Paige said. “Tey had the skates of their lives in the short program and long program. We are so proud of them.” Paige, who has coached the team for six seasons, came into this campaign excited about the team’s prospects.

“Tis team just had a certain


spark to them and we kind of came up with this concept of the butter- fly,” Paige said of the team’s free skate and costume. “We knew it was the


right team for that, and we knew it was going to be a good season, and everything kind of fell into place the right way. “Half the team has a left wing


and half has a right wing and we kind of just played with that throughout the whole program,” Paige added. Miami University garnered the


pewter medal. The Starlights show their enthusiasm for their butterfly program from the Disney movie Dinosaur.
