Newton-born skater Gracie Gold, who held a closed practice at Loring Arena earlier this week, captured first place and the gold medal in the U.S. National Championships Saturday night at the TD Garden in Boston.

After the short program, the teen was in first place. She was the defending 2013 national silver medalist. She lives in Illinois and trains in California now.
