Waveney Roller Skating Club entered the FARS National figure and free skating competition in Kettering and returned home with three medals.

The standard of skating at this event was very high, with skaters from across the country competing in these disciplines for the first time this year.

Morgan Docwra skated incredibly well to take the silver medal in both the cadet figures and free events, with Brooke Enticknap also skating well in the prelim figure event to take the bronze medal.

Brooke also competed in the cadet free event, performing a lovely programme to finish in seventh place.

The club was also represented by six other skaters from the club who all performed well and showed that the hard work they have put in over the past few months is paying off, with improvements displayed in both disciplines.

Ella Moore skated well but just missed out on a medal spot, taking fourth place in both her novice figure and free events.

Sophie Franks competed alongside Ella and skated well to take ninth place in the figure event and 13th place in the free event. Caitlin Forster entered the novice event for over 14 years and performed well in both her events, finishing in 15th place for her free programme and 10th place in the figures.

Charlotte Harker entered the Espoir figure and free events and performed well to take the sixth spot in both.

Katelyn Elliott entered in the elementary events, skating well to take eighth place in the figures and fifth place in her free event.

Lilia Clarkson entered the mini figure event and showed great improvement in the elements to take seventh place, Unfortunately Lilia was unable to skate her free programme due to an injury to her arm in the warm-up.

The skaters are now working hard for the rest of the year’s competitions, which include the British Championships for dance and figures and free in June.

The club are grateful to their sponsors for the 2017/2018 season, and R&S Meen Auto Repairs in Beccles.

Waveney Roller Skating Club, based at Denes High School, have beginner grade sessions every Saturday from 10 to 11am which cost £3 per session.
