Figure skaters impress in Estevan


Jessa MacDonald was among the performers at the Saskatchewan Stars on Ice show.

Many of Saskatchewan's top young figure skaters were at Affinity Place recently, thanks to a visit from the Saskatchewan Stars on Ice program.

Members of Skate Canada Saskatchewan's High Performance Team were joined by young people from the Estevan Figure Skating Club for the show. They showcased their talents for several hundred people in attendance.

The show opened with a team skate by members of the Saskatchewan provincial team. The first half featured solo performances by Estevan club members Shaelyn Oszust, Madison Folkerts, Jaycee Young, Avery McNabb and Emily Hanson; and a junior group routine with locals Kadence Oshaway, Brittney Young, Ekaterina Ivanova, Rowyn Siever, Mackenzie DeRosier, Kelsey Holden, Callista Gerling and Tyann Babyak.

Saskatchewan figure skating team members Kirah Brown, Koen Kucher-Paulmark, Hannah Lingenfelter, Jessa MacDonald, Mikhaila Paslawski, Kailee Sawatzky, Tyler Anderson and Nicki Nagy also had solos. Mann hails from Carievale.

Also part of the first half were two dance pairs – Hailey Harms and Wyatt Cowell, and Courtney Royer and Addison Voldeng – and a pairs figure skating team: Keelee Gingrich and Davin Portz. The first half concluded with a demonstration by the Moosomin Mystic Motion synchro team.

The second half opened with a demonstration by provincial team members. From there, spectators enjoyed performances by local skaters Nicole Kistanov, Cassy Folkerts and Isabel Marcotte; and an Estevan intermediate group routine courtesy of Lenae Mehler, Jayna Chrest, Jersey Long, Sydney Davidson, Kylie Armstrong, Ashley Piper, Kaitlyn Bye and Hailey Neff.

High Performance members Jessie Pastachak, Justin Kacmar, Emma Davidson, Sydney Kuppenbender, Shayanne Bear, Jace Adamson and Shelby Hall performed, too. Pastachak is from Bienfait, and Hall is from Frobisher.

The dance teams and the pairs team also skated in the second half.

All featured performers came together to perform one more time to wrap up the event.

Proceeds from the performance will be directed to developing figure skaters in Saskatchewan.
