Veteran Laura Hall of the Vernon Vortex broke one club record and established two personal best times in the annual Kamloops Classic Chill speed skating meet last weekend.
Hall moved up a ranking to compete versus male skaters.
Following Hall’s lead, Nate Benn and Daniel Hall put up strong performances, finishing second and third, respectively, in the ultra competitive Division 2. Both skaters set three new club records with Benn counting two personal bests and Hall racking up three PBs.
Drawing on her strong competitive nature, Lauren Miller recorded a personal best in the 500-metre event despite being very ill. She toughed out a best ever time.
Nathan Stewart and Charlie McGinty each notched a best time in a distance, McGinty in the 500-m and Stewart, on the strength of a great start, in the 200-m. Sam and Will McDicken recorded their first official competitive results at The Chill. In his first comp, Sam McDicken started out near the top of Division 6, finishing third overall, winning the 200.
