COMPETING AT SUPER Series Vancouver Island were: Front row - Nicole Webster

Skaters compete at Super Series events

Comox Valley competitors wrap up their spring season in style

Several Comox Valley Skating Club skaters wrapped up their spring season competing in two Super Series events.

Emma Cullen continued her winning ways, taking first place in the Pre-Juvenile Women’s event at Super Series Vancouver Island in Parksville. Claire Brown, competing in her first event of the year, picked up a bronze medal in the Star Four event.

This was a first-ever skating competition for Nicole Webster skating at the Star One level.  Also competing at Parksville were Aaliyah Melanson in Star Two. Peyton Meiers and Jade Paganelli each competed in the Pre-Novice Women’s event.

At the Super Series Victoria Day Competition in Surrey, Meghan Taylor picked up a silver medal for the Junior Women’s Freeskate and Nicole Webster Silver in Star One. Claire Brown placed eighth in Star Four against tough competition.

Jade Paganelli had to withdraw due to injury and Jane Schaffhauser missed the ferry and her event after being stuck in traffic on the Island Highway, caused by a tragic accident south of Nanoose.

While skaters in our CANSkate and other “Learn To Skate” programs will be taking a break from skating until September, several of our Junior, Intermediate and Senior skaters will be attending various summer training camps here on the Island as well as in Vancouver, Edmonton, and Lethbridge.

Mark, Kathy and Jade Paganelli are moving to Ontario, so we wish them all the best and continued success to Jade in her skating.
