New head coach Mike Hall had five Vernon skaters competing with every athlete going in four races.

Laura Hall, in the under 11 age group, claimed three gold medals and one silver, while Nate Benn, in the under nine category, garnered one gold and one silver.

Daniel Hall, Jared Eddy, and Lauryn Eddy, in the under nine division, each had two second-place finishes.

Coach Hall is very impressed with the commitment of these younger skaters in travelling the distance for racing.
