Skaters shine in Okanagan Interclub event

Winning gold were Giselle Weisheit, who earned a personal best in Star 3, Nadia Snyman in Elements 2, as did Summerland’s Saki Smith, Keara Anutooshkin in Elements 1, Alex and Rachel Jung in Intro Elements and Meagan Pankratz in senior silver solo dance as the Zoe Wu.

Bronze medal winners were Samantha McNally in Start 5 girls under 13 (free skate), Tuckwood in Star 4 girls 13 and over (free skate), Rachel Jung Star 3 (free skate), Cloe Robert, Star 3 (free skate), Snyman in silver interpretive, Smith in intro interpretive, Wu in Elements 2 and Jasmeen Bajwa in Elements 1.

The club’s next competition is in Kamloops in the middle of February.  Buttenham said with that much time off, they are resetting training plans back to new and more difficult jumps and spins.  Come mid-January, they will take another look at what elements are in the skaters’ programs and start to refocus on training the program.

Their next test day is in Oliver on Dec 13.  The clubs winter programs begin Jan.4, 2016 and registration is currently open at www.glengarryfsc.com.
