Skaters with the Con­cep­tion Bay North Skat­ing Club are a busy bunch th­ese days.

Over the past couple of weeks, some 19 skaters took part in a pair of com­pe­ti­tions in Mount Pearl and Par­adise.

First up was the Skate NL Sec­tion­als, which were held Nov. 6-7 at the Glacier in Mount Pearl. CBNSC sent a lone ath­lete to the event.

In the pre-ju­ve­nile women (un­der-11) com­pe­ti­tion, Jaide Rus­sell skated her way to a sev­enth-place fin­ish, while Bare­need na­tive Jenna Ef­ford — who does not train with the CBN club — brought home a first place vic­tory in the pre-novice women di­vi­sion. The top fin­ish qual­i­fied Ef­ford for the Cana­dian Chal­lenge held in Ed­mon­ton, Alta., as a mem­ber of Team NL later this month.

A few weeks later, the Con­cep­tion Bay North club was well rep­re­sented at the Agnes This­tle In­vi­ta­tional hosted by the Mount Pearl-Par­adise Skat­ing Club on Nov. 28-29 at the Par­adise Dou­ble Ice Com­plex.

The group sent 17 the event.

ToniLynn Par­sons was the top fin­isher af­ter she grabbed sec­ond spot in the se­nior bronze women di­vi­sion. Fin­ish­ing closely be­hind her was Laura Keefe, who se-

skaters to cured third place.

Sarah Daw­son fin­ished sev­enth in the same com­pe­ti­tion.

• Star 5 women (un­der-13) — Ju­lia Keefe, 10th; Emily Daw­son, 12th;
