More than 130 skaters participated in the annual Skate Woodbury ISI Competition Saturday at Bielenberg Sports Center.

The competition featured skaters from various clubs in the Twin Cities including Woodbury and Cottage Grove.

It was a two-day event filled with a variety of performances - from freestyle to solos and duets to synchronized dances.

Skaters as young as 6 were featured, along with pre-teens and teens.

Though the music didn't start right away when she entered the ice rink, Megan Wallace, a 14-year-old from Woodbury, won first place in one of the freestyle groups.

"That was so nerve-wracking," she said.

The Oak-Land Junior High student is one of many skaters who have been skating for years.

"It's something different than all the other sports," Wallace said. "It's just a unique thing to do."

Competition results will be posted at skatewoodbury.org.
