Super series skate in Parksville successful

Fine performances by Fuller Lake skaters

Fuller Lake Skating Club members put their best efforts into a Vancouver Island Super Series competition at Parksville.

This was one of a series of events that take place all over B.C. and the Yukon. Skaters competing in Star 4 and above were scored by numerous judges who grade the skaters’ performances on different attributes.

The points are accumulated over the season and those scoring above a certain level are invited to the B.C./Yukon Section’s Development Camp in Kelowna. Three Fuller Lake skaters – Sophie Dawe, Lucy Street and Brooklyn Puska – made the grade and headed to Kelowna.

Skaters in Star 1, 2 and 3 are scored on different elements performed and overall skating level with either gold, silver, bronze or merit for each element.

Those marks are then pooled together for an average and overall score of either gold, silver, bronze or merit.

Star 4 and above is the beginning of placement with other skaters.

Fuller Lake head coach Dominic Turgeon was very pleased with the performances of all the skaters at Parksville.

The season has been very successful for the skaters as well as the coaches. A lot of growth has occurred and everyone is looking forward to next season.

For some of the skaters this is the end of the season while others have a final competition in Surrey during the Victoria Day long weekend in May.

Results from Parksville were as follows:

Star 1: Skyla Lewis – Bronze; Jada Watson – Silver; Sydney McGuire – Merit; Heidi Simpson – Bronze.

Star 2: Daisy Troise – Bronze.

Star 3: Jasmine Taylor – Gold; Leah Brown – Gold; Daphne Anderson – Bronze.

Star 4 Under 10: Mica Torres-Hernandez – fourth; Star 4 Under 13: Isabel Anderson – fifth; Amanda Nagy – sixth.

Star 5 Under 13: Brooklyn Puska – 10th; Star 5 13 & Older: Lucy Street – fourth; Sophie Dawe – sixth.

Bronze Interpretive: Lucy Street – eighth; Isabel Anderson – 11th; Brooklyn Puska – 12th.

Silver Interpretive: Sophie Dawe – 10th.
