The Williams Lake Skating Club joined roughly 400 other skaters in Chilliwack Oct. 16-18 for the Super Series Autumn Leaves.
Seven of the club’s skaters: Emma Penner, Alanna Walters, Mackenna Alexander, Georgia Jacobson, Ryanne Jones, Reagan West and Jade Johnson attended.
It was the club’s first competitive meet of the season.
“I was very pleased with how all the girls skated for their first time out this year,” said WLSC coach Joanne Macnair.
“Generally, this is always a tough competition for us as it comes up in October when we have only been back on the ice for five weeks and then having to compete against skaters from the Coast who are skating year round.”
Despite those shortcomings, WLSC athletes brought home multiple medals.
Jacobson, Jones and West, all in the Star 3 division, skated to silver medals. Penner, also in the Start 3 division, won bronze.
In the Junior Silver Ladies and Silver Interpretive categories Walters claimed silver medals in both.
For Bronze Interpretive Johnson skated to fourth.
Alexander, in the Star 5 division, picked up a 10th-place result.
The WLSC’s next competition will be Jingle Bells from Nov. 21-22 in Aldergrove, where four of the club’s skaters will be attending.
The following weekend, Nov. 28-29, 13 of the WLSC’s skaters will travel to Kelowna for the Okanagan Interclub competition.
