We were honored this past week to host AnnCathryn Lagemann from the 2017 Philippine National Team. While on vacation here in Tahoe, AnnCathryn, took advantage of the higher elevation and the open ice to stay in competitive form.
Van Oleson was working the front counter when AnnCathryn and her family popped in asking about skate times and a trainer. “I was just engaged in a great conversation with our international guests. This happens often. The rink here is a common destination in all the great activities in Tahoe. Not knowing AnnCathryn’s background, her mom asked if we had a trainer and I thought, oh sure, how about one of our local skate school coaches to help here with some beginner lessons. AnnCathryn’s parents just smiled. At one point, I walked over to the window of the arena to check on things and then, oh my, wow. I mean WOW.”

🙌“It was a pleasure to have AnnCathryn and her family here for the week”, Oleson said. “Through engaging conversations with the Lagemann family, we got the opportunity to better know their culture, meet great people, and we can now follow AnnCathryn - the future star⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
