Skaters glide through championships

Campbell River Skating Club skaters carved their edges recently at the Vancouver Island Championships

Campbell River Skating Club skaters carved their edges recently at the Vancouver Island Championships Nov. 15-17 at the Fuller Lake Arena in Chemainus. For a few of the club’s skaters, this was their first competition of the season and they performed very well.

All of the skaters practice very hard to hone their performances and it showed in their results.

There are approximately 20 Skate Canada competitions held each year throughout B.C. and they are primarily hosted by local skating clubs, regions and the BC/YT Section. Competitions and events are organized and run by a vast group of volunteers and provide a source of revenue and motivation to further the development of figure skaters in B.C.

Campbell River skaters achieved the following results: Megan Weber (Senior Bronze Ladies)- silver medal; Mia Rosa (Star 4)-bronze medal; Janelle Tumbaga (Star 1)-bronze ribbon; Jazlynn Balalio (Star 2)-bronze ribbon; Shanti Kellerhals (Star 2)-bronze ribbon; Valeria Hernandez (Star 1)-bronze ribbon; Emily Crawford (Star 1)-bronze ribbon; Celeste Gale (Star 2)-merit ribbon; Emily Peters (Star 1)-merit ribbon; Andrea Beattie (Star 5, Group 1)-placed ninth and (Elments 2, Group 3)-placed fourth; Sierra Petrovcic (Elements 1, Group 2)-placed fourth and (Star 4)-placed eighth; Leana Tremblay (Star 5)-placed fifth.
