Brockville – Skate Brockville Figure Skating Club hosted the 1000 Islands Super Series Event at the Memorial Civic Centre on January 17th-19th. The 3-day event brought in over 300 figure skaters and their families to the city and to the rink.
The snow storm didn’t stop the determination of the skaters to come to our wonderful city and to participate in this qualifying event. The level of skating at the event was impressive and inspiring to see! Skate Brockville’s own figure skaters all skated beautifully and cheered each other on.
The club’s figure skaters received high recognition in their skating abilities. Destinee Burns was awarded top marks in her freeskate program and individual elements while both Kadynn Morrison and Melissa Broniszeski took to the podium: Kadynn in 2nd place (silver medal) with her STAR 9 artistic program and Melissa Broniszeski in 1st (gold medal) with her STAR 5 artistic program.
The club’s head coach, Brenda Mueller, not only ensured her skaters were prepared but also put her heart into the entire event to ensure that it ran smoothly and all obstacles were triumphed. Congratulations to all who participated and a HUGE THANK-YOU to all of our volunteers, local businesses, media outlets, and organizers who helped make this competition such a success!
