NORTH SAANICH — Four skaters from the Peninsula Figure Skating Club (PFSC) competed last weekend at the Vancouver Island Regional Championship Competition that was held at the Archie Browning Arena in Esquimalt.

Megan Rebneris, Hayley Gunasinghe, Nicole Beaulac and Saffron Hilder all competed at the Regionals and fared well in their respective categories.

Rebneris finished second in the Star 4 Girls U13 Group 2 and took gold in the Introductory Interpretive category. Gunasinghe took bronze in Star 4 Girls U13 Group 2, Beaulac took fifth in Star 4 Girls U13 Group 2 and Hilder took seventh in the Pre-Novice Women U16 Short and second in the Pre-Novice Women U16 Free.

Rebernis’ silver medal will see her move on to the 2015 Super Series StarSkate Final in Kelowna which runs March 6 to 8.

Kiara Jankowski, who skates for Oak Bay Figure Skating Club but trains at Peninsula part-time, placed third in the Pre-Novice Women U16 Short and took gold in the Pre-Novice Women U16 Free category.
