St. Lawrence sent a contingent of skaters to the pre-season competitions in Ottawa and Kitchener. These meets were open to all levels of skaters in the province.  A number of personal best times were set, this early in the season, and the club picked up 3 medals across both competitions.  Nolan placed in silver position at both meets, and Grant finished third in Ottawa.

So what’s next!

The Provincial Series meet is Nov. 4-5 in Cambridge, and we have a number of qualified skaters.

Find the details at ontariospeedskating.ca/provincial-series

The Regional Series meet is Nov. 18 in Kingston, and anyone from the club can race in this event.
