What a great season of skating it has been for our little club! Our skaters have progressed in both CanSkate, AdvanceSkate and StarSkate Programs, receiving ribbons, passing evaluations and tests. Many of our Star Skaters participated in The Lake Superior Super Series 8 Competition with wonderful results. In Star 3 Freeskate Nola Mulroney received a silver, Ella Stewart received a Bronze and Emma-Jo Beach received a Silver. For their team event they finished with a silver. Evie-Marie Beach competed in three events and finished 4th in Star 7 Elements, 11th in star 7 Freeskate and brought home a gold medal for Pre-Juvenile under 11. Delaney Schumacher finished 1st in Star 8 Freeskate.
