Kelowna Skating Club shows well in Burnaby

Thirty-nine local skaters compete in B.C. Summerskate

The Kelowna Skating Club and Centre of Excellence made a strong impression at the B.C. Summerskate competition held last weekend in Burnaby.

Thirty-nine Kelowna skaters competed in the second event of the 2013 B.C. Super Series season.

Kelowna competitors took two spots on the podium in a very high quality field of skaters in the junior women’s event.

Julianne Delaurier finished second with a 123.08 points finish, while Cailey England took bronze with a personal best 120.45 points.  Kelowna’s Jayda Jurome and Dana Bobyn finished in sixth and eighth, respectively.

A highlight for the Kelowna team occurred in group 2 of Pre-Novice Women, as 12-year-old Mckenna Colthorp struck gold by a commanding margin of over 11 points, thanks to her total score of 80.08.

Meanwhile, in group 1 of the same level, her club-mate Ajsha Gorman took the silver medal, while Rochelle Reeve finished just off the podium in fourth.

At the Novice level, 14-year-old Rachel Pettitt took the silver medal in group 1.  Rachel represents the Arctic Edge Skating Club of Whitehorse, but trains at Kelowna.

At the Pre-Juvenile Under 11 level, 9-year-old Daria Carr won group 2 with a score of 27.89, a personal best and the top score of all groups.

Maya Rose of the KSC finished in second in group 2, while Alexis Garost did likewise in group 3 of Pre-Juvenile Women Under 11.

Kelowna’s Ashley Sales took the gold medal in Senior Bronze Women, while Abbey Reiter won the Junior Silver division.

Kelowna boys had a great weekend as well, as Carter Hiob finished second in Pre-Juvenile Men, while Carson Consiglio finished second by a narrow .04 margin in STAR 4 Boys.
