A young Fernie Skating Club star has been chosen and won the East Kootenay and BC Provincial Canskater of the Year.

Lela Krotz is a grade one student at Isabella Dicken School in Fernie and is coached

by Deb Joseph. She started skating two years ago and loves to do spins, cross-overs and walking on her picks.

She also participates in coach pitch and sparks. She loves playing with her

friends, getting badges for Sparks, riding her bike and swimming!

Her name will go into the national pool and she will know within a month or so if she is chosen.

She travelled to Vancouver on May 5 with her proud mother, two aunts and uncles and papa and granny to receive her award.

She said the best thing about Vancouver was the hotel she stayed in!

Lela competed in the Sparwood Mini and Rocky Mountain Competition in

Cranbrook and placed third both times.

She also loves being in the Carnival and this year she was in Finding Nemo.

She said her favourite skaters are Sara Weech, then Jenna Harrad and Brady Whitson.
