Silver Wings figure skaters fly at Eastern Divisionals

Published on January 31, 2017

Several figure skaters from the Silver Wings Figure Skating Club in Bonavista competed at the Eastern Divisionals last month at the Jack Byrne Arena in Torbay.

On Sunday, Jan. 22, four Silver Wings participated in the event—Sarah Boyce and Jordan Piercey in the Star 5 U13 category and Klaire Hayward and Natalee Chaulk in the Star 4 U13 category.

Jordan won a bronze medal for her score 14.44, a personal best.

Sarah also posted a personal best with a score of 14.32.

Both girls will now represent Silver Wings at the Provincials, being held in Clarenville on Feb. 17-19.

Due to the storm the weekend of the Divisionals, the schedule had to be changed from a two-day event to one day.

Because of the change, Silver Wings Patricia Maloney and Jennifer Hiscock, (who both received byes through Sectionals) did not have to skate.

Patricia and Jennifer will also represent Silver Wings at the Provincials in February.
