Lacey Greenamyre goes for gold in speed skating

MIDDLEBURY — Middlebury Union High School senior Lacey Greenamyre this winter wrapped up her high school speedskating career, but she is not ready to get off the ice just yet.
The Middlebury resident will continue speedskating through college at the 400-meter Lake Placid Olympic Oval and get some practice on the ice rink at SUNY Plattsburgh, where Greenamyre will study beginning this coming September. She has also committed to play on the SUNY Plattsburgh women’s varsity lacrosse team.
This past skating season, Greenamyre, the daughter of Ann and Jim Greenamyre, earned a silver at the Jaffee Longtrack Speedskating Meet on Jan. 5 at Lake Placid, N.Y., where the completion was 95 percent Canadian.
Greenamyre was one of 10 age 19 and younger girls in the U.S. to qualify and compete in the Junior Nationals/AM Cup Longtrack Speedskating Meet in Lake Placid, N.Y., on Jan. 18-20. Then on Feb. 1-3, she attended the Empire State Winter Games, which is an international longtrack speedskating event at Lake Placid Oval. Greenamyre placed 1st in all four U19 races: the 500 meter, 1000, 1500 and the 3000.

More than just a racer, she did the announcing for the two-day Short Track event and also worked as a timer at the Saratoga Cup and AM Cup events, when she wasn’t racing. Occasionally, the speedskating meets were conducted in sub-zero temperatures.
Lacey Greenamyre’s longtrack speedskating season is now over, but she has made friends and attained some impressive accomplishments during her years at the ice rink.
