Skaters begin competitive season with strong showing in Chilliwack

Fuller Lake members reach their targets for division placings

Five skaters from the Fuller Lake Skating Club proved to be a handful for the competition in the Autumn Leaves event at Chilliwack.

In Star 3, Leah Brown earned silver assessment.

Amanda Nagy placed a superb fourth out off 11 entries in the Star 4 Under 12 division while Brooklyn Puska came fourth out of 10 in Star 5 13 and older.

In Star 6, Lucy Street finished 12th and Sophie Dawe was one spot behind in 13th among a group of 21 skaters.

All the skaters that went to the first competition of the young season off-Island obtained very strong results.

The Fuller Lake skaters traditionally aim for middle positions in their divisions based on the high level of competition and that’s precisely what they all attained.

It was a great kick off to the season for those who attended and also the first time in recent years Fuller Lake had club members at the competition. It is usually held in Kamloops, but the change to Chilliwack made it more accessible to some.

It’s a big weekend coming up for the club, with the Island Interclub being held at the Kerry Park Recreation Centre in Mill Bay Friday through Sunday.
