Winfield skaters find success

It was a very successful outing for the club, as most skaters placed in the medals

Winfield Skating Club members competed in Kelowna at the Super Series Star Skate Final Competition from March 3 to -5 and had a very successful outing for the club, as most skaters placed in the medals.

Of the four young women who skated, Calta Rigby and Simone Buchholz both achieved bronze placings in their Star 2 groups. Denae Levine brought home silver in the Star 3 category. Maria McLeod placed in the top 10 in the tightly contested Bronze Interpretive event.

The 11 adult skaters, who refer to themselves as “Team Okanagan” drew the loudest cheers from the audience. Ranging in age from 21 to 77 years of age, every single member of the team brought home medals. The total medal count was 12 gold medals, three silver medals and two bronze medals.

Members of the team include Maureen Barnes, Donna Bergvinson, Karen Blyth-Smith, Isabella Ciocoiu, Dave Drake, Donna Good, Ian Lawrence, Corinne Macasso, Wendy Ord, Henrietta Penney, and Robert Verhelst.

The Winfield Skating Club would like to thank their coach, Rebecca Hayman, for her hard work and dedication, which enabled the skaters to skate so well.
