Figure skaters from the Castlegar Skating Club competed at the Kootenay Regionals from Jan. 20-22 in Creston.

Andrea Poznikoff picked up the Senior Artistic Award and also won Silver in her freeskate event.

Sara LeFurgey placed fifth and Candice Soukeroff sixth in the preliminary category.

Zoey Crockart and Allison Soukeroff placed Gold in performance evaluations; while Marlo Hilderman, Megan Cousins, and Sarah Cousin all picked up Silver.

“The skaters performed well,” said coach Sabrina Hinson. “It was was a great first competition for Megan, Sarah and Marlo and they left with good memories and a positive experience and are looking forward to future competitions.”

 

Several skaters also got the chance to attend a seminar in Nakusp on Jan. 28 where they had a chance to be coached by former Olympians Melinda Kunhegyi (pairs, 1984) and Michael Harrington (Ice Dance, 1988).
