Flying Fliers on track

The Sardis Fliers speedskating club had six athletes competing at the WorkSafeBC Speed Skating Short Track Provincial Championships in Port Coquitlam last weekend.

Simon Hawkenson had an eighth place finish in his age category (T2T M 15) while Riley Clemons finished seventh in the T2T M 12 division. Quinn McKay brought home an iron medal for her fourth place finish and Bekky Clemons and Dominique Hawkenson finished fifth and seventh respectively, all in the T2T F 12 category.

Dallas Hawkes came home with a bronze medal for her third place finish in the T2T F 11 category.   Because of their finishes Hawkes, McKay and Clemons all secured spots on the B.C. team that will travel to Kelowna for the Canadian Speed Skating Association’s Western Championships on March 26-27.

They will be competing against the best speed skaters from Western Canada and the Yukon.

The Sardis Fliers are coached by George Donatelli.
