Terrace Skating Club’s athletes bring home medals from provincial competition

Coach says to win is a big deal

The Terrace Skating Club (TSC) was counting medals again after returning from the Super Series Final Competition in Kelowna from March 6 to 8.

Eight Terrace skaters participated in the competition that saw athletes from across the province hit the ice, totaling five medals.

Coming home decorated was Ethan Kietzmann who won two gold medals in the Star 4 Boys Freeskate and the Star 4/5 Solo Dance, followed by Makayla Foffrest who scooped a silver medal in the Star 7 Group 1 Artistic and a bronze in Star 7 Freestake.

“The energy of the competition was very competitive but at the same time friendly. I have learned to work hard and have fun,” writes Kietzmann in an email to the Terrace Standard about his experience in Kelowna.

“I have improved my speed and my spins from last season. My future goals are to land a few of my doubles, I am very happy with my progress.”

Skater Maia Guerreiro was close behind with a bronze medal in the Star 7 Group 2 Artistic event.

For her, this was the first time attending the Super Series Final Competition and says she was anxious to compete in it.

“The energy was very high and intense. I was very nervous before going on the ice because I was competing against so many skaters,” Guerreiro says.

“I learned to try my best and be proud of how I did in the competition, even if it wasn’t my best performance.”

Coach Jennifer Kuehne adds this is a tough competition and that it’s a big win to come home with a medal.

The remaining Terrace skaters in attendance finished as top 10 in either Freeskate, Artistic and Solo Dance, all who had up to 32 skaters in each category.
