Delaurier leads Kelowna Skating Club in Chilliwack
On the strength of depth at all levels, the Kelowna Skating Club and Centre of Excellence captured 15 medals at the Super Series Autumn Leaves competition in Chilliwack.
Thirty-nine local skaters took part in the event which featured top skaters from BC and Yukon.
Fresh off an international assignment in Poland, 15-year-old OKM student Julianne Delaurier won both segments of the junior women's event, taking the gold medal with a 122.3 point total.
Another highlight occurred during group 1 of Pre-Juvenile Women Under 11, as Kelowna skaters Daria Carr, Alyssa Dobbs and Summer Peitsch swept the podium. Kelowna’s Maya Rose took the gold in group 2.
The Kelowna team also showed their skill in winning both gold medals at the Pre-Novice Women Under 14 level. Ajsha Gorman won group 1, while Mckenna Colthorp won group 2, flanked by club mate Rochelle Reeve with the silver.
Ten year-old Olivia Gran skated a flawless and powerful program to capture the gold medal in Juvenile Women Under 11. Also striking gold in their respective events were Kaiya MacLeod (Pre-Juvenile Women U14) and Mackenzie Nelmes (STAR 4 Girls group 1).
“Overall, it was a solid weekend for our skaters," said KSC Director Jason Mongrain. “For the most part, the performances have improved since the last couple of events, which hopefully bodes well for the main events ahead.”
The next event for the Kelowna club will be the BC and Yukon Sectional Championships at Richmond next month.
