The Terrace Skating Club won a team trophy in the Vanderhoof Kla-How-Ya competition last weekend.

The 15 figure skaters earned 33 medals in the various categories Dec. 2 to 4, competing with skaters from Prince Rupert to Quesnel.

After the medals, several skaters also performed in the more challenging evaluation events, and Emily Larmour won a gold ribbon in the Star 1 Quad Threat event.

It’s a big accomplishment, indicated coach Jennifer Kuehne.

“It is very difficult to earn a gold evaluation as every elements you do has to be perfect for your skating level,” she said.

“The judges don’t hand out many gold evaluations.”

Terrace skaters also earned 15 silver and six bronze ribbons for provincial evaluations.

The team won the trophy because their medals tallied up to the most points.
