Skaters Emily Sales, Abby Bulawka, Gwenyth Preston, Sophie Sanderson and Ariana Rose performed well but just missed the podium.

Malayna Lesko won bronze in the novice level, while Calissa Adlem and Abbey McTavish earned podium finishes in the Juvenile levels.

A trio of Kelowna skaters competed in the highly competitive Junior Women’s division which featured seven current and former national medalists; Emma Bulawka, Olivia Gran and Vienna Harwood finished 5th, 6th and 7th respectively.

The next BC Super Series skate is in October.
