Skaters carve up strong performances to medal

Solid performances by Glengarry Figure Skating Club members resulted in 13 medals in the BC/YK Super Series Final competition in Kelowna.

“It was really good. We had some super strong showings,” said Glengarry skating coach Trevor Buttenham. “They were good at the competition as well, but that also put us over the top on a couple of the Super Series rankings, which was great.”

The club picked up 10 silver medals and three bronze.

Saki Smith, a member of the Summerland Skating Club who skates in Penticton once a week, took first in the Super Series rankings in Star 5 girls under 13. Home club skater Samantha Macnally finished second in the Star 5 girls under 10 category with a personal best of 19.46 and Kelowna Skating Club member Zoe Wu, who skates in Penticton twice a week, took third in the Star 5 girls U13.

Buttenham liked what he saw from Jordana McEachern, who finished second in scoring 24.67 points in juvenile women under-14, as well as Nadia Snyman, who earned a personal best performance in senior bronze women taking second with a score of 21.49 points. Buttenham said Snyman was “spot on, she skated a clean program.” Snyman competed against 31 skaters.

“For her to place second was fantastic,” said Buttenham. “She really had a knockout skate.”

Buttenham also felt that way about Macnally, who he said had a solid performance. Buttenham said it was a good way to end the season.
