Courtney Renner, a third-grader at Crofton Woods Elementary School, won two gold and two silver medals Saturday at the fourth annual open ice-skating competition at Northwest Ice Rink in Baltimore.
The 7-year-old from Shaftsbury Avenue won gold medals in free style and interpretive skating and silver medals in figures and in dance.
Courtney has been skating for only two years under the direction of coach Patty DeLisi at the Piney Orchard Ice Rink and already she has gotten into that Olympic routine. Most mornings she is up at 5:30 a.m. to be at the rink by 6:30 a.m. Her mother, Paula, and her older brother, Mike, generally are there to cheer her on. By that time, her father, Jim, is off to work.
Congratulations, Courtney, and keep up the great skating.
