The Kelowna Skating Club had a successful outing at the Super Series Autumn Leaves competition last weekend, with 33 skaters winning a total of eight medals.
Held at Chilliwack, the Autumn Leaves served as a final tune-up event leading into the provincials next month.

Emma Bulawka placed 3rd in the Junior Women’s group.
At the Novice level, 13 year-old Daria Carr won the gold with a personal best score of 115.49 points. Her training mates Ashley Sales and Mikayla Kramer finished 3rd and 4th, respectively.
Meanwhile, Kelowna skaters showed much promise at the development levels as well.
Nine year-old Ariana Rose won group 1 of Star 5 Girls under 10, with a personal best score of 19.53, while Calissa Adlem finished 4th.
At the Pre-Juvenile level, Sarah Mullins won the silver medal within group 2 of Under 13 year-old skaters, while Gabrielle Jugnauth and Megan Yudin finished 3rd and 4th, respectively, in group 2 of Under 11’s.
At the Pre-Novice level, 11 year-old Emily Sales won the bronze medal in group 2, while Malayna Lesko finished 4th in group 1. Forty-seven skaters competed between the 2 groups.
