DARTMOUTH - The Amherst Skating Club travelled to Dartmouth this past weekend and had a great time.
Several skaters made the journey and captured medals.
First-time competitor Allanah Conrad competed in the pre-preliminary category and placed sixth in a competitive field.
"I have never seen Allanah skate the way she did," coach Shelley Polley said.
Eight-year old Hannah Doucette, skating in pre-preliminary, had a good showing with a fourth-place finish.
Also coming fourth was Jaycee Hawkes skating in the competitive peewee A category.
Maile Champagne competed in pre-preliminary and returned with a bronze medal.
Chelsey Gould skated in the pre-preliminary category and captured a silver medal.
She also competed in pre-introductory interpretive and placed fourth.
Jadyn Soehner competed in the competitive peewee B category and brought home a silver medal. She also skated in pre-introductory interpretive and earned a second silver medal.
Jessica White, Jennifer Porter and Haley Speight skated in the bronze interpretive and junior bronze free skate programs.
White placed fifth in her interpretive and ninth in her free skate, Porter took sixth in her interpretive and 10th in her free skate and Speight received a fourth in her interpretive and 11th in her free skate.
The girls will compete next at provincials Feb. 27-March 1 at St. Margaret's Bay.
