CBN skaters back in ac­tion

Have suc­cess­ful start to 2011-12 sea­son

The Compass - - ORTHTE -

The Con­cep­tion Bay North Fig­ure Skat­ing Club has kicked off a new sea­son with some im­pres­sive re­sults at a pair of com­pe­ti­tions in re­cent weeks.

The club, which uses are­nas in Bay Roberts and Har­bour Grace, sent three skaters to Sum­mer Skate 2011, which was held Aug. 20 at Twin Rinks in St. John’s. The girls com­peted in the pre-ju­ve­nile women’s divi­sion, and swept the medals. Maya Pet­ten won gold, McKenna Mercer was sec­ond, and Laura Keefe placed third.

Jenna Ef­ford of Bay Roberts, who skates with the Mount Pearl club, fin­ished fourth.

The sec­ond com­pe­ti­tion, the 2011 Re­becca Pack Me­mo­rial Friend­ship Skate, took place at the Glacier in Mount Pearl on Sept. 24.

The fol­low­ing is a summary of how CBN Skaters faired at that event:

• Pre-pre­lim­i­nary II women (eight years-of-age) — Ju­lia Keefe, sec­ond; Bri­anna Rus­sell, third; and Emily Daw­son, fourth.

• Pre-pre­lim­i­nary II women (nine years-of-age) — He­lena Churchill, first; and Rachel Drover, third.

• Ju­nior bronze women — Toni­Lynn Par­sons, first.

• Pre-ju­ve­nile women — McKenna Mercer, first; Maya Pet­ten, third; and Laura Keefe, fourth.

Note: Jenna Ef­ford of Bay Roberts, who skates with Mount Pearl, fin­ished third.

Club of­fi­cials say sev­eral skaters are pre­par­ing for Skate NL sec­tion­als, which will take place in Novem­ber in Tor­bay. Com­pe­ti­tions are also sched­uled for Jan­uary and Fe­bru­ary.

Nine mem­bers of the CBN Fig­ure Skat­ing Club took part in the Re­becca Pack Me­mo­rial Friend­ship Skate in Mount Pearl on Sept. 24. They were: Front (l-r) — Rachel Drover, Bri­anna Rus­sell, Ju­lia Keefe, He­lena Churchill and Maya Pet­ten; back — McKenna Mercer, Toni-lynn Par­sons, Emily Daw­son, Laura Keefe
