Well Done Team Ontario Canada East!

A great team of thirty skaters coached by Kristi Copeland, Kelly Ball and Patti Walsh did a great job representing Ontario in Halifax at the 2013 Canada East Championships on March 22nd - 23rd. Three skaters achieved overall podium finishes; Gibson Himbeault 2nd in boys 13, Courtney Sarault 3rd overall in Girls 12 and Renee Steenge 2nd overall in Girls 13.  We also had four other skaters achieve podium finishes in various distances and our relay teams did a great job making the podium too.  29 personal bests were set by Team Ontario!
