Local Skaters Shine At Autumn Leaves
In the last year, Ally Norum has made the biggest jump in her figure skating career.
The 11-year-old from Prince George who skates out of the Northern B.C. Centre for Skating is currently ranked 10th in the province in pre-juvenile ladies.
The ranking is an accumulation based on her five best scores from October 2014 to October 2015.
"Her scores have continually improved throughout the season," said Andrea Ludditt, NBCCS director of competitive development. "It's based on her technique, quality of skating and her speed. It's largely due to putting in the time and that she just loves skating."
Norum won the bronze medal at the Autumn Leaves meet two weeks ago in Chilliwack.
The cache also included a gold medal by Olivia Trampuh in junior silver ladies, three silver medals and a bronze.
"It's a huge step forward," said Allen of winning that many medals. "It's a Super Series event and one of the larger events in the province. Kids from all parts of B.C. attended and we were the only ones from northern B.C."
Trampuh, 14, scored a personal-best score of 27.77 points, landing two double-double jump combinations in the process.
