A whirlwind month of highlights for the Port McNeill Figure Skating Club continued with club skaters picking up four medals at the B.C./Yukon Territory Section StarSkate Finals.

Skaters with the club claimed two silver and two bronze medals, and Alyssa Busch and Whitney Murgatroyd helped the Vancouver Island Region team to the Super Series Cup team title with their efforts.

Busch, of Port Hardy, was runner-up in the Junior Silver Ladies freeskate and Darian Murgatroyd of Port McNeill was second in preliminary group 3 competition during the event, held in Surrey in late March.

Sisters Kierra and Karlie Shambrook each earned third-place honours in preliminary group skating. Busch and Whitney Murgatroyd were awarded spots on the Vancouver Island Zone Team based on results held at competitions during the season. That squad topped five other B.C. zone teams to claim the Cup championship.

Whitney Murgatroyd placed sixth in the Junior Bronze Ladies freeskate and younger sister Lexie was seventh in preliminary group 2 competition.

Two weeks earlier, a larger contingent of skaters from the club traveled to Courtenay for the annual Barbara Rasmussen Memorial Competition and took home the team trophy. Two weeks before their Rasmussen Memorial victory, the club’s skaters successfully put on three performances of the club’s bi-annual Ice Carnival, Under the Big Top.
