Fuller Lake skaters test themselves in Super Series event

Atmosphere in Parksville emulates the big-time competitions

Fuller Lake Skating Club members took their immense talents to Parksville for the final competition of the 2017-18 season.

Skaters from all over the B.C. and Yukon section were there to test themselves against the best in their age groups and the Fuller Lake contingent did extremely well.

Volunteers at the Sandy Shore Skating Club did an incredible job of hosting the event. They included a live broadcast on the skatingbc website as well as a “kiss and cry” area for higher level competitors to sit after their programs with their coaches to watch a playback of their routines and receive their unofficial results – just like at the big-time events like the Olympics.

“It was very impressive,” noted Cassandra Taylor, one of the skating moms and club publicist. “Everyone had a great time and worked their hardest.”

Results for Fuller Lake participants were as follows:

STAR 1: Deliah Modeste, bronze; STAR 2: Daisy Troise, bronze; Daphne Anderson, bronze; Jasmine Taylor, bronze; Leah Brown, silver; Taylor LaRonde, merit; STAR 3: Mica Torres-Hernandez, silver; Amanda Nagy, silver.

STAR 4: Julia Hussey, seventh; Brooklynn Puska, seventh; Isabel Anderson, seventh; STAR 5: Sophie Dawe, 10th; Lucy Street, 15th.

Jazmin Wheeler finished 20th in both her Pre-Novice Short and Long Programs amid a top-notch entry field.

Introductory Interpretive competition brought a gold medal for Brooklynn Puska and silver medals for Lucy Street and Isabel Anderson, while Sophie Dawe came 10th in her Bronze Interpretive event.

Final test days in the next couple weeks will officially wrap up the season. The annual general meeting and awards night is Sunday in Ladysmith.
