The Terrace Skating Club took home a sparkling team trophy and were adorned with smiles and medals after a Kitimat figure skating competition Nov. 28-29.

All 16 of the Terrace skaters earned at least one top-three finish, and together they took home 39 medals out of the 63 events they competed in at the Kla-How-Ya competition.

They earned 19 gold medals, 13 silver and 7 bronze in total.

“The skaters’ medal count added up fast with more points than all the other northwest clubs, meaning Terrace Skating Club also won the combined team trophy!” said coach Jennifer Kuehne.

Halle Classen, 10, took home a whopping five gold medals and one silver from her events, and seven-year-old Miley Harris was the youngest skater to win gold. Harris also won a silver evaluation.

Evaluations recognize skaters who achieve a provincial standard, rather than comparing them to the other competing skaters in their area.

Other skaters who won medals are as follows: Makayla Forrest won four gold, one bronze, and one gold evaluation. Maya Lecuyer won three gold, two silver medals. Camryn Monsen won two gold, two silver, and one bronze. Tristen Morgan earned two gold, and two silver medals. Brianne Monsen and Laura Dale each earned won one gold, and one bronze medal. Mikayla Beaudette won one gold, and one bronze evaluation. Emma DeCario earned two silver medals and Kaytlin Gingels won one silver. Teysean Henry won one silver, and one bronze, and Kally Mackenzie got one silver evaluation. Kayeanna Mackenzie got one silver, and Aaliyah Beeton and Maia Geurriero each won one bronze and one bronze evaluation.

The Terrace figure skaters are now looking forward to regional championships in Prince George on January 22 to 24.
