Members of the Terrace Skate Club attended a regional competition in Quesnel March 9-11.

Coach Kelsey Minhinnick said the biggest thing that stood out from the weekend was the sportsmanship and teamwork the skaters showed towards each other.

With only six skaters from Terrace among 174 at the event, Minhinnick said the girls really supported each other.

She said all of the skaters did a great job.

“Our girls did really well, they’re good performers.”

There was also a familiar face on the judging panel: former TSC member Jacqueline Leniuk, who went as far as Canadian Nationals as a figure skater.

Results were:

Jorden Hendry – Second in creative senior, first in gold elements , fourth in interpretive gold and second in women’s solo gold.

Maya Lecuyer – Third in showcase beginner, second in creative primary, seventh in elements and second in  performance.

Cristine Heidemen – Fifth in interpretive and second in per-preliminary free-skate.

Julia Bowles- fifth in junior bronze free-skate 12 and under, and fifth in bronze interpretive.

Emma DeCario- First in pre-preliminary free-skate, second in primary creative, third in primary elements and eighth in pre-introductory interpretive.

Tristen Morgan – Sixth in performance program, sixth in primary creative and eleventh in primary elements.
