Skaters from the Quesnel Figure Skating Club performed wonderfully at the end of the season Spring Gala April 25.

The skaters club had a lot to celebrate after this incredibly successful season. The club members did very well, with skater Selena Van Aert winning several victories over the chores of the season. Over the last two years Selena placed 2nd.

This year has proven to be a highlight for the young skater and the Quesnel Figure Skating Club with Selena placing 1st at the Jingle Blade, CNCR Regionals, and Totem.

This accomplished skater also placed 2nd at the Super Series in Kelowna, and skated into victory to win the overall title.

“I am extremely satisfied with my final season in Quesnel Figure Skating Club,” skater Selena Van Aert said  “Winning the Super Series Final is definitely one of the best highlights of my whole skating career. Finally being able to say “I am a provincial champion” is such a great feeling. All of the endless support from the club, as well as all the people around me really helped me achieve my goals and I can’t thank them enough. This gala was very special to me because it will be my final memory with the club. Throughout all my years of skating, I have become very close with so many people. They are all family to me. The arena is my second home; I grew up there and made so many great memories that I will never forget. Moving on will be hard, but figure skating will always be a part of me.”

The Spring Gala event included a new segment, which registered three to four year olds, and these young members from the CanSkate program performed in several group numbers.

The CanPower skaters performed a choreographed group number with Sharon Chow.

Both the audience and the skaters seems to thoroughly enjoy these group numbers remarked club coach Wendy Berezowsky.

The Spring Gala also featured execptional solo performance from some of the club accomplished skaters.  The gala ended in a final tribute performance by Selena.

The Quesnel figure skating club is already looking forward in excitement for the next season. The club will be holding the CNCR Regional Championships, and the planning has already begun.
