The Williams Lake Figure Skating Club sent four of its skaters to the Super Series March 23 in Surrey — the annual provincial skating championship.

Amanda Lane, 10, Dawn Henley, 13, Ashley Beauchamp, 15, and Breanna Davidson, 15, represented the region as part of a group of 10 skaters who qualified.

Both Lane and Davidson competed in different divisions, while Beauchamp and Henley skated in junior bronze women.

Lane finished seventh in the preliminary division, with Davidson taking 10th in junior silver women.

In junior bronze, Beauchamp finished 10th, while Henley took 11th.

Williams Lake Figure Skating Club coach Joanne Macnair said the competition was tough but was proud of the way her skaters competed.

“This was the top skaters in the province,” Macnair said. “It’s fairly elite.

“That said they all skated well and made a good showing. I was happy with how they all skated, so that’s what it’s all about at the end of the day.”

The competition was streamed live online, and featured skaters in multiple age groups from around the province.
