Terrace skaters host Christmas show tomorrow

And the club recently returned from the annual Kla-How-Ya competition in Prince Rupert

The Terrace Skating Club (TSC) made its way to Prince Rupert for the annual Kla-How-Ya competition two weekends ago and the 14 skaters came home with 17 medals: nine gold, five silver and three bronze.

“The skaters had a great energy,” said coach Kelsey Minhinnick. “Their performances were enjoyable to watch and it was especially nice to see their comfort-level on the ice increasing to allow them to really perform to the judges and the audience.”

It was also an opportunity for skaters to be evaluated, with the group receiving many gold, silver, and bronze ratings.

For Halle Classen, it was her first competition and she brought home a gold medal for her “Riverdance” interpretive. And in the same categody, Teysean Henry skated her new “Rainbow Connection” interpretive and brought home silver, meaning TSC had two skaters on the podium for that event.

Brianne Monsen landed her first axel in competition and brought home three medals – two gold, one silver. Camryn Monsen won two bronze medals, and said last week she likes watching the other skaters so she knows what’s coming up at regionals in Quesnel at the end of January.

Grade 12 Jesse Thandi, TSC’s oldest skater and highest level competitor in attendence won gold and silver – silver in her freeskate solo and gold in her interpretive event, a performance to Michael Jackson that “blew the roof off the Prince Rupert arena… It was awesome,” said Minhinnick. “She’s going to do something similar at the ice show.”

The Terrace Skating Club Christmas Skating Exhibition happens tomorrow, Dec. 18, from 4:45-5:30 p.m.
