The host Kelowna Skating Club will be well represented with 20 skaters, led by 2016 Canadian novice women’s runner-up Olivia Gran, who was also second as a junior in September’s Autumn Classic.

Also skating for Kelowna will be McKenna Colthorp, who placed fourth in the Autumn Classic junior division.

Reigning national junior champion Sarah Tamura, from Champs International Skating Club in Burnaby, will also be competing.

The top four finishers in pre-novice through senior singles, dance and pairs will earn a trip to the Skate Canada Challenge, Nov. 30 to Dec. 4 in Montreal.
