Jessica Groves collects medal set at Winchester skate competition
Sports - March 14, 2012 Edition
What the Morrisburg and District Figure Skating club lacked in numbers at the annual Winchester Figure Skate Competition on Saturday, March 10, it more than made up for in quality.
The lone skater to represent the Morrisburg Figure Skate Club, Jessica Groves (pictured left) scored a gold medal skate in the CanSkate elements Routine Stage 4 and then backed it up with a silver medal finish in the Canskate Challenge (a new format introduced for CanSkate this year).
With her regular coach away on vacation, Jessica had Jessica Bass, a senior level skater with the Morrisburg Club, take on the coaching responsibility.
Bass, who is considering becoming a coach in the future, did a great job in a very professional and friendly manner.
It was an impressive day with the two Jessicas working well together for a memorable event for both.
Although Madisyn Hart had originally registered for the competition she had to withdraw due to illness.
Morrisburg skaters are now getting ready for carnival.
