A solid contingent of Richmond Hill skaters provided an understandably stiff test for the local crew as the Gerry McCrory Countryside Sports Complex played host to Let's Skate 2015 earlier this month.
Still, a handful of Sudbury area talent shone through. Alyssa Murray (Sudbury Skating Club) finished second to Amanda Stan (Richmond Training Centre) in the Junior Women's free skate, finishing third in the short program.
Murray posted scored of 58.45 and 26.56 over the course of the three-day competition. Maya Lappin (Richmond Hill FSC) was the class of the Novice Women's grouping, with Lara McCelland (Toronto Cricket Skating and Curling Club) finishing well back in second place.
The Sudbury Skating Club tandem of Madeline Baron and Jillian Bushey were right in the mix for third and fourth place, with Baron completing her routines with scores of 26.93 & 42.71, and Bushey at 20.31 & 44.79.
There were no Northern Ontario competitors in the Novice Men's classification, as Iliya Kovler (Richmond Hill FSC) took top spot. The Pre-Novice women were broken into three groupings, with Abby O'Bonsawin (Sudbury SC) finishing third in Group 1 (19.62 & 35.22), Jennavieve Hinton-Cannard (Sudbury SC) fourth in Group 2 (24.78 & 34.87) and Mackenzie Anderson (Sudbury SC) placing fifth in Group 3 (17.64 & 31.33).
Erica Gomirato (Sudbury) finished second to Sophie Larocque of Sturgeon Falls in the Gold Triathlon, while the Bronze Triathlon featured Cassidy Burton of Sudbury (1st - 87.62 pts), Elizabeth Vaillancourt of Copper Cliff (2nd - 71.48) and Emily Armstrong of Walden (3rd - 63.08).
