Haydn Gock, a senior at Hillsborough High School, will join 10 other skaters from the country to be recognized at the 2021 Toyota U.S Figure Skating Championship in Las Vegas from Jan. 11-21.
The 2021 Scholastic Honors Team is comprised of student-athletes who are recognized for their academic and skating achievements, as well as their community service, according to information provided by the Princeton Skating Club.
Each Scholastic Honors Team member will receive a $3,000 scholarship, a team jacket and $1,000 to donate to a charity of their choice.
