Fort St. John hosted the BC Cup #2 over the week-end.  The North Peace Rec center is known provincially for its good ice, and this week-end was no exception.  Top end skaters from throughout the province competed hard, particularly to Division 2 men, and there were some very fast times.  Local skaters did well, especially considering this was the first short track meet in almost 3 months for some of them.

Of particular note for the local club was the number of personal bests skated over the week-end, led by Desiree Mitchell who lowered her times in six separate races.  It was also nice to watch local girl Trisha Gladysz skate here again; Trisha skated with the club until two years ago and now trains out of Calgary. over the last couple of weeks two skaters have achieved provincial status.  Rachel Kalkman became a provincial skater this week-end by bringing her personal bests down below 120% of the national record in two distances.  Last week-end in Chetwynd Kathryn Stickel did the same.
