Skaters take to back-to-back competitions

The Williams Lake Skating Club has been busy during the past few weeks attending back-to-back competitive meets.

The Williams Lake Skating Club has been busy during the past few weeks attending back-to-back competitive meets — one in Aldergrove, the other in Kelowna.

Four of the club’s skaters — Kolbi Seterengen, Emma Penner, Ryanne Jones and Alanna Walters — attended the Jingle Blades competition Nov. 20-22 in Aldergrove.

Seterengen skated to a gold medal in the Star 3 Girls (group three) division, Penner took gold in Star 3 Girls (group five), Jones claimed gold in Star 3 (group five) and 10th in Pre-Intro Interpretive and Walters brought home a silver medal in the Junior Silver Women’s division and a bronze medal in the Silver Interpretive category.

At the Okanagan Interclub competition from Nov. 27-29 in Kelowna, the WLSC brought a contingent of 13 skaters.

WLSC head coach Joanne Macnair said all of the club’s skaters performed very well.

“[They were] busy competitions,” she said. “Some were in multiple events.

“[I was] very pleased with our first time competitors Bailey Jones, Haedyn Lens, Julia Bowman and Faith Ritchot.”
