Burchstead, Marcia A

Igor Shpilband has reported that Tiffany Stiegler, who passed all her senior dance tests in one day, is eligible to compete in U.S. Figure Skating qualifying competitions this season. Stiegler, a former pairs skater, and new partner Sergei Magerovski plan to enter the Pacific Coast Sectional Championships in November in Escondido, Calif.

The duo made its ice dance debut at the Lake Placid Dance Competition this August, competing in two compulsory dances in the event’s “open” category.

Stiegler, 20, skated pairs for many years with her brother Johnny, now a college student. Magerovski, 23, placed eighth in senior ice dance at the 2004 U.S. Championships with his wife Rebecca. The couple recently ended its on-ice partnership. – MARCIA A. BURCHSTEAD
