Skaters glide to medals

Four members of the Terrace Skate Club  travelled to Prince George to take part in the Williston Inter-club Competition, Oct. 21- 23.

Jorden Hendry, Julia Bowles, Emma Decario and Jesse Thandi all took part in the competition, which coach Rayven Algor said was a strong showing for the club.

Hendry took home three medals at the event, earning a silver in senior creative and bronze in both interpretive and freeskate, all in the ladies gold category.

“For our first competition (of the season), we did really well,” Hendry said.

Hendry has moved up a division this year and has been skating five times a week to make sure she is keeping up.

“I’ve been working really hard, so I was happy,” she said of her three medals.

Julia Bowles also had a good competition. Bowles broke her arm mid-August, and while she was back skating the next day, she is happy to be feeling good, and back in the swing of things for her first competition of the season.

“I really enjoyed going on the ice, period,” Bowles explained.

She ended up with a  6th place finish in junior bronze freeskate, 4th in junior bronze elements, 6th in bronze creative and 7th in bronze interpretive.

Emma Decario said she enjoyed the tournament as well. Decario got 7th in creative primary, 4th in primary elements and 6th in primary solo.

She said what she likes about skating with the skate club is mastering new skills.

“I like learning new things, and how it (skating) gets harder, and then easier,” Decario said.

Jessie Thandi earned herself a silver in preliminary freeskate, 7th in introductory interpretive and a 4th in bronze elements.

She said even though she has been to this competition before, it’s still a thrill to compete.

“You still get that nervous feeling once you get on the ice, it’s pretty cool,” Thandi said.

Algor said the tournament was a lot of fun.

She explained part of this was the atmosphere at the event, which was a Mardi Gras festival theme.

“All of the girls did really well, they represented the club well,” Algor said.
