The Castlegar Skating Club has had a busy season so far.  Skaters have been practicing hard and some tested at a Low to High test day at the Nakusp Figure Skating Club last month. The club also recently attended the 2014 West Kootenay Invitational Competition hosted by the Rossland Figure Skating Club Jan 17-19.

At the competition, skaters took tests on the High Test Day Friday Jan 17 and also had great skates competing in various events over the weekend.  Some of the results are as follows: Tara Gleboff – Star 2, Silver; Hailey Gleboff – Star 2, Bronze; Annika Cheveldave – Star 4, Bronze and Elements, Silver; Zoey Crockart – Star 4, 5th and Elements, Gold; Allison Soukeroff- Star 2, Silver and Interpretive, 5th and Elements, 5th; Candice Soukeroff – Star 3, Silver and Interpretive, Bronze and Elements, Gold.
