Port Hardy's Alyssa Busch

Busch wins B.C. silver

Port Hardy figure skater Alyssa Busch claims a silver medal in the annual B.C. Star Skate Championships.

Port Hardy figure skater Alyssa Busch claimed a silver medal in the Junior Silver Women’s division last week to highlight the North Island’s participation in the annual B.C. Star Skate Championships in Kelowna.

Busch was one of three skaters from the Port McNeill Figure Skating Club who qualified for the competition. Sisters Kierra and Karlie Shambrook of Port McNeill also competed but finished off the podium in the Star 4 Women’s classification.

The competition was the last of the season for the club, but skaters will return to Chilton Regional Arena next Wednesday for ice dance testing sessions with visiting instructor Patrick O’Brien. Skating begins for the senior ladies at 9:30 a.m.

PMFSC coach Elizabeth Kines reminds all skaters and prospective newcomers that the club will once again host its annual summer Canskate program when ice goes back in for the first two weeks of July. Look for registration info coming in June.
