McNabb, Team Purple grab Jamboree win

Amy McNabb, Mickaela Ward, Becca Phillips and Holly Lowe all participate in the first event of the season.

Disney’s ‘Frozen’ film has penetrated the Halloween scene and now it’s served as the latest themed jamboree that the Smithers Skating Club has hosted.

Four Prince Rupert skaters made the trek east, including Mickaela Ward, Becca Phillips, Amy McNabb and Holly Lowe as well as the coaching staff led by Prince Rupert Skating Club head coach Sheri Pringle.

“It was awesome. They did really well, it was a lot of fun,” said Pringle.

“Basically, it’s a team event so each child was put on different teams so they can be competing with kids on other communities and Team Purple won and Amy was on that team.”

McNabb’s victory and the jamboree as a whole served as preparation for the 2014 Kla How Ya Interclub competition scheduled at the Jim Ciccone Civic Centre for Dec. 5 – 7.

“Everyone has new programs this year for the season so we normally start them in September so this is a good way for them to work out the quirks here and then they will compete for the Interclub,” said Pringle, adding that club registration is ongoing.
