Members of the Kelowna Skating Club racked up 24 medals at the 2016 Okanagan Regional Figure Skating Championships in Kamloops.

Ashley Sales, 12, led the Kelowna team with a trio of gold medals, winning the Pre-Novice Women Short, Pre-Novice Women Free, and Open Elements events.  Her Free program score of 67.63 points, a personal best, represents the highest score ever achieved by a Kelowna skater at the Pre-Novice level.

Meanwhile, her sister, 10-year-old Emily Sales, won a pair of gold medals of her own.  Firstly, she led a Kelowna podium sweep of Pre-Juvenile Women, flanked by Malayna Lesko and Taiya Knight.  Sales also won the Elements 2 event.

Also winning a pair of gold medals was Abby Bulawka, in the Juvenile Women’s division as well as the Elements 3 event.
