Leading the charge for the club was Sarah Mullins, who won the gold medal in the star-7 women’s short program and the silver medal in the Star-8 women’s free skate.

Gabrielle Jugnauth and Megan Yudin performed well in the pre-novice women level. The 11-year old Jugnauth won gold in her group with a personal best score of 91.72 while Yudin won silver in her group in the pre-novice level.

Skaters Emily Sales, Abby Bulawka, Gwenyth Preston, Sophie Sanderson and Ariana Rose performed well but just missed the podium.

Malayna Lesko won bronze in the novice level, while Calissa Adlem and Abbey McTavish earned podium finishes in the Juvenile levels.

A trio of Kelowna skaters competed in the highly competitive Junior Women’s division which featured seven current and former national medalists; Emma Bulawka, Olivia Gran and Vienna Harwood finished 5th, 6th and 7th respectively.

The next BC Super Series skate is in October.
