My cousin and I were what you’d call “renegade trick-or-treaters.” For those of you unfamiliar with the term, it refers to someone who uses a pillow case to hold their candy instead of one of those wimpy plastic buckets sold at CVS. It means never really having an official costume, but a genuinely scary rubber mask that molded to our faces while we donned a black hoodie and black sweatpants. There was no curfew on our Halloween; just candy. Lots and lots of candy.

A five-year-old Alice O’Connor timidly steps onto the ice at the Pittsfield Figure Skating Club. Likely uneasy about
the endeavor that lies ahead, she begins to earn her bearings by slowly meandering around the rink, getting a feel for the ice beneath her. Somewhere along the process, something clicks. Figure skating becomes almost second nature, and all of a sudden the fear of falling is heavily outweighed by the goal of success.

Lynch sisters round out careers Reply

She also holds program records in career goals and points in a game. Kayla Lynch is no stranger to impressive accolades either. The three-time GNAC All-Tournament Team member and three-time scholar athlete was recently named to the Academic All-Region first team. Both are exercise science majors and shine as brightly in the classroom as they do on the field. But what do you award two players that have already been awarded everything?
