The Kelowna Skating Club made its presence felt at the Snowball Freeskate Competition last weekend in Oliver as 40 skaters brought home 27 medals—the highest total of any participating club.
Kelowna skaters proved dominant at several levels, as they swept the podium in the Preliminary Creative (group 1), Silver Elements, Star 4 Girls under 10, and Juvenile Women’s divisions.
At the Juvenile level, 11-year-old Rochelle Reeve skated a clean and inspired program in winning the gold medal with a personal best score of 33.48 points, with club mate Kristen Ciurka just behind with 32.94, also a personal best. Reeve also took gold in Gold Elements.
Other Kelowna skaters striking gold in their respective events were Mikayla Consiglio (2), Alyssa Dobbs, Kaiya MacLeod, Carter Hiob, Ashley Sales, Kenedi Woodcox, Olivia Gran, and Vienna Harwood.
