The Nicola Valley Skate Club (NVSC) headed down Vernon this past weekend for the Okanagan Regional Championships. 

Seven skaters from the club attended the regionals to compete against 15 other clubs throughout the region. The 500 total competitors were made up of skaters from across the province, including Kamloops, Kelowna, Oliver, Clearwater, Revelstoke, Valemount, and Golden. 

“All had personal bests in their events,” said Coach Diana Lorenz. “Competing against clubs from all over our region was such a great experience for our young athletes.”
