FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – Elk Club Speed skaters were successful on home ice at the Long Track Speed Skating Championships over the weekend.

In total nine skaters went home with a medal out of the nine separate races, as the Elk Club members competed against 13 clubs from across the province.

In the Junior/Senior Women’s division Renee Kalkman finished in first place in three of the four events she competed in for a total of 3,816 points. Yuna Lovell came in second with first, second and two third-place finishes in her events and 3,148 total points. In third-place, Amanda Mitchell crossed the finish line in second and third place in her respective races for a total of 2,964 points.

In the Long Track Men’s group Matthew Mitchell finished in first place in every event he raced in for a total of a perfect 4,000 points. Austin MacGregor came in third overall with 3,448 points.

Emma North finished the Girls 11 and 12 category with a perfect 4,000 points after winning all events, while Sidney Bennie was not far behind in second place with 3,816 points.

“There were a lot of good results for Fort St. John skaters,” said Vice President Wim Kok. “The local participants skated away with a lot of medals. It was probably one of the biggest Long Track Speed Skating Championships I’ve ever been a part of in my thirty plus years with the club.”
