Hunter Bezak and Ava Hozjan, both students at The Fernie Academy, returned home with gold from the B.C Super Series Starskate Final, held in Kelowna March 8 to 10.

The Super Series champions for each division are determined by calculating the total of each B.C. skater's top three scores posted from various competitions throughout the season.

Bezak went into the finals aware that she was sitting in first spot. She performed the skate of her life, earning a score of 21.43 to bring her final series score in the Star 4, 13 and over to 60.97, beating second place by more than five points.

Hozjan also went into the finals sitting in top spot, and also skated a personal best earning a score of 20.14. She placed second in the final, however her cumulative score through the season totalled 57.40, making her the overall Super Series champion in the Star 4 under 13 event.

Both girls train with The Fernie Academy Skating Program and The Fernie Skating Club.
