Golden moments for two Fuller Lake skaters

Torres-Hernandez and Street skate to glory in their respective levels

Fuller Lake Skating Club members are back on the ice, hoping to pick up right where they left off last season.

The Start Skate Super Series competition in Surrey was prominent among the many highlights late in the 2018-19 season.

It’s one of the largest competitions Fuller Lake skaters have been part of in recent years. During the course of three days, there were about 1,200 skaters from all over B.C., Alberta and the Yukon participating at three different rinks.

It was great for all the Island skaters to have that experience. They tend to see the same skaters at competitions on the Island.

Leading the way for Fuller Lake were Mica Torres-Hernandez, 11, and Lucy Street, 14. They both brought home gold medals from their respective Star 4 and Star 5 levels.

It was a huge accomplishment for Torres-Hernandez in her first time competing at this level.

The Star 4 level is the beginning of competition against other skaters in the group for placements. In Star 1-3, skaters can earn either a gold, silver, bronze or merit designation.

Results for the other skaters were as follows:

Star 3 – Daisy Troise: bronze; Star 4 Under 13 – Amanda Nagy: eighth; Star 4 12 and Over – Isabel Anderson: sixth.

Star 5 Under 13 – Brooklyn Puska: 10th; Star 5 13 and Over – Sophie Dawe: 15th; Silver Interpretive – Dawe: 11th.

The current season started Sept. 9. Next event on the calendar is the Vancouver Island Skater Development Seminar in Parksville Sept. 21-22.
