The Compass - - SPORTS -

Com­peti­tors with the Con­cep­tion Bay North Fig­ure Skat­ing Club turned in an im­pres­sive per­for­mance at the east­ern re­gion­als in Marys­town on Jan. 8-9, com­ing away with 18 medals, in­clud­ing seven gold.

Ten skaters qual­i­fied for the pro­vin­cial cham­pi­onship in March. They in­clude the fol­low­ing: Katie Daw­son, Toni-Lynn Par­sons, McKenna Mercer, Laura Keefe, Maya Pet­ten, Bai­ley Fowler, Stephanie French, Ashley Porter, Natalie Keep­ing ( bye) and Katie Cran­ford ( bye). “ The club did quite,” said spokesper­son Sherri Keefe. Among the high­lights was the pre­sen­ta­tion of the Hart Award to McKenna Mercer. This award is pre­sented to the skater who puts his/her heart and soul into the per­for­mance and rep­re­sents the true mean­ing of fig­ure skat­ing. McKenna took gold in the pre­lim­i­nary women cat­e­gory (age nine and un­der).
