MacDonald, from Kelowna, took gold at the 2018 Kamloops B.C. Winter Games in the Female 16 landing a score of 54.01. The key to her success?

“Not half-sending,” said MacDonald, of her run which she completed a Cossack on one of her airs and landed a truck driver on the other.

This is the second medal for MacDonald, who earned a bronze at the Penticton 2016 B.C. Winter Games.
