TALENTED COMOX VALLEY Skating Club members (l-r): Back row - Peyton Meiers

Skaters finish top five in B.C.

Peyton Meiers and Jade Paganelli post great results at Super Series events

Five skaters from the Comox Valley Skating Club travelled to Kelowna to compete in the BC/YT Section Super Series final.

The Super Series is a grand prix style series of figure skating competitions organized by the BC/YT Section of Skate Canada to give skaters from all over B.C. and the Yukon the opportunity to compete for an overall Section (Provincial) title by accumulating points at the various events.

During the 2012/2013 series, Comox Valley skaters competed in events in Kamloops, Kelowna, Burnaby, Surrey, Parksville, Nanaimo, and Victoria. In the overall standings two Comox Valley skaters finished in the top five in their categories, Peyton Meiers fourth in Junior Silver and Jade Paganelli fifth in Juvenile.

Also competing at the finale were Meghan Taylor in Gold Women and Gold Interpretive, Jane Schaffhauser in Senior Bronze Women, and Emma Cullen in Star 3 Women.

Most of the skaters will now take a short break and be back on the ice April 2 to begin preparations for the first event of the 2013-14 Super Series.  In conjunction with the figure skaters’ April and May training sessions, the Comox Valley Skating Club will be running pre-school, pre-power, and Canskate sessions.
