The Smithers Figure Skating Club picked up medals at the CNCR regionals in Quesnel this weekend.

“It was a really successful weekend,” said head coach Tyler Dykens, noting that competition included skaters from Williams Lake through to Prince Rupert.

Smithers’ Chantel Gammie, Samantha Fallows, Becky, Miranda and Millie Huxtable, competed in the weekend-long competition, along with five other skaters from Hazelton.

“They competed in lots of different types of events,” said Dykens.

“Samantha and Chantel did best in their free skate event.”

Dykens said this is also Samantha’s last competition of the year.

For Millie Huxtable, this was her first competition.

“This was just a stepping stone for her,” said Dykens. “Everyone skated really well.”

Up next, the club will focus on a jamboree in Terrace  at the end of February and the annual Smithers Figure Skating Club Carnival on Friday, Mar. 13.
