The Quesnel figure skaters will travel to West Kelowna for their first competition of the season.
The skaters honed their routine at Arena 2 on Friday, November 18 in front of family and friends as the Quesnel Figure Skating Club held a simulation before the Okanagan Interclub.
“Today was the first time the skaters competed in front of an audience this year, and then a lot of them didn’t compete regularly due to COVID, so it’s the first time in two years that we have a regular competitive season, and we’re really excited,” said Director of Skating Carly Dinicol.
More than 10 local skaters will compete at the Okanagan Interclub at Royal LePage Place from Friday November 25th to Sunday November 27th.
They all set personal bests last year.
The Quesnel Figure Skating Club attends the out of town competition each year.
“The children work very hard. They are very motivated and they are a very close-knit team,” said Dinicol, adding that their season has started well. “The whole coaching staff is really proud.
Quesnel figure skater Mitchell Dunn, who recently moved to Vancouver, has once again qualified for the national championships.
