A member of the Princeton Skating Club has been selected to the 2021 U.S. Figure Skating Scholastic Honors Team.

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.

A National Merit Commended Scholar and a College Board AP Scholar with Distinction, Gock represented the Princeton Skating Club last season where he earned a silver medal at the 2020 North Atlantic Regional Singles Challenge at the Novice Men division, and finished eighth at the 2020 Eastern Singles Final.

He has taught Learn-to-Skate group lessons, has volunteered at the Princeton Skating Club Junior Committee, and has performed at ice shows to raise funds for charitable causes, according to the statement.
