One of South Jersey’s own just stepped-up big time for the United States. Or should I say, skated! 17-year-old Isabeau Levito can now officially call herself a silver medalist.

Levito put herself in an excellent position to make the podium at Worlds after turning in a near-perfect short program on Wednesday night in Montreal. Another powerful performance during the long program competition on Friday night earned Isabeau the silver medal.
