Two Terrace figure skaters have returned from 2011 Pacific STARSkate provincials held in Cranbrook.
The province-wide competition ran from March 4th to 6th, and hosted skaters from all over B.C.
Jorden Hendry won bronze in the Silver Ladies Triathlon three part event.
“It was great, it felt like an acomplishment after putting in the long hours of morning work,” Hendry said. She added that it felt good to leave with a medal.
Rayven Algor placed seventh in the Gold Ladies Freeskate event, and eighth in Gold Ladies Interpretive.
Her coach Barb Long said she is very proud of Rayven, whom she has coached for 10 years.
“Rayven had a very busy year,” she said, between skating, working and attending school.
It will be Rayven’s last year in competitive skating.
Long adds that Rayven did accomplish her quad goals, which is the highest level of achievement a skater can have before they move on from skate club.
The skaters attended provincials as a part of the Cariboo North Central Region team, which included skaters from Prince Rupert though Williams Lake and up to Ft. St. John.
Jorden’s coach Jennifer Kuehne said it was fun for the skaters to be a part of a large team, cheering for
other skaters from the north, as normally they all skate against each other.
Next for the Terrace skate club is the Kla-How-Ya interclub competition March 19th and 20th, in the main arena at the Terrace Sportsplex.
The event is free for spectators to watch and will include traditional competition as well as fun events where skaters will dress up.
