Terrace Skating Club’s Maya Lecuyer saw gold at the latest regional competition in Williams Lake, winning four gold medals in all four of her regional events.

That’s just one of the highlights of the Terrace Skating Club’s season so far.

At that same event, which saw them compete against competitors from Prince Rupert, Kitimat, Smithers, Prince George, Quesnel, and Williams Lake area, the girls brought home seven gold, two silver evaluations, and two bronze medals in total.

And two of Terrace’s skaters, Lecuyer and Jorden Hendry, are heading to Kelowna March 7 through 9 to compete in the StarSkate Super Series Final. The event will be live streamed around the world, meaning Terrace will be able to watch and support the girls from afar.  The Pond to Podium Super Series consist of six competitions which provide specific development opportunities and experiences.

And in other big news, Laura Dale, who has been skating with the club for six years, will be competing in her first Special Olympic Regional Championships.

Called Totem Interclub, it is being held in Fort St. John Feb. 28 to March 2. If she wins her event she will move on to Special Olympics Provincials next year.

“We are very proud of our athletes and wish them luck in the coming events!” is the word from the club.
