Battle Over Standards in School
Howard University is now the first historically Black university in history to have an intercollegiate figure skating team.
The history-making team was founded by Maya James and Cheyenne Walker, two Howard University students who have been involved in the sport since childhood and longed to get back on the ice, U.S. Figure Skating reports.
“I just missed the sport, honestly,” James said. “I didn’t really skate that much during the pandemic; I stopped skating for like two years. As I was coming to college, I also saw a lot of the U.S. collegiate Instagram pages and how they went to competitions and how the competitions look so fun and welcoming,” she told the outlet.
