The youth-oriented Panther Pride Unicycle Team has again represented the Snoqualmie Valley School District in this year’s Seattle Macy’s Holiday Parade. Riders from elementary level and up participated in the annual event Thursday, Nov. 24.

Team members Alex Lancaster (Twin Falls Middle School) and Tony Torchia (Mount Si High School) were featured on Evening Magazine as they soared through the air and over TV host, Jim Dever, who was lying on the grounder the trick.

Panther Pride Unicycle Team will make several appearances in the Seattle area this school year. The team has also been invited to perform during half time shows at UW and SPU Basketball games.

Many riders are already planning for the 2012 North American Unicycling Championship and Convention in Michigan next summer, followed later by the world championships in Brixen, Italy.
