Medal haul for Kelowna Skating Club in Surrey

Kelowna Skating Club members claimed eight medals at the BC/YT Section Super Series Victoria Day Interclub competition in Surrey.

Kelowna skaters had excellent results at all levels of the high profile event, which is the first Super Series event of the new season.  Of the 18 local skaters that participated, 16 had top-5 finishes.

A highlight for the KSC occurred in the very competitive Novice Women’s category, as 14 year-old Julianne Delaurier scored a personal best 105.94 points in a decisive victory.  Kelowna’s Priscilla Sabang finished with the bronze medal thanks to a personal best score of 92.35 points.

The Junior Women’s event consisted of a very deep field of 17 skaters.  Kelowna skaters made an impact in taking 5 of the top 6 placements, including Haley Sales and Jayda Jurome winning the silver and bronze medals, respectively.  The pair of skaters had a busy month, as they were also invited to participate in the Skate Canada National Development Camp at Toronto earlier this month.

At the Juvenile level, 10 year-old Ajsha Gorman captured the gold medal in group 2, while club mate Rochelle Reeve finished with the silver in group 1.

Meanwhile, at the Pre-Juvenile level, 9 year-old Olivia Gran skated to a personal best score of 28.63 points in winning the gold medal in her group.

A young pair of 8 year-old Kelowna skaters, Daria Carr and Mikayla Consiglio, skated to 3rd and 4th place finishes, respectively, in the group 1 of Preliminary Women.

“These are very good results for this time of year, although the results aren’t necessarily our main objective,” noted KSC Director Jason Mongrain.  “It is early in the season, so this event gave our skaters the opportunity to put some mileage on some new elements and programs.”

Full Results:

Preliminary Women group 1:  Daria Carr 3rd; Mikayla Consiglio 4th

Pre-Juvenile Women group 1:  Olivia Gran 1st

Pre-Juvenile Women group 2:  Ashley Sales 4th; Alyssa Dobbs 5th
