Revelstoke senior skaters Jacqueline and Megan Cottingham brought home medals with Megan winning gold for her Interpretive program and bronze for her Elements program and Jacqueline winning bronze for her Interpretive program.

Revelstoke intermediate skaters Alexandra Robertson, Jaimie Reynolds, Alexis Larsen, Sophie Dorrius, Makenna Howe, and Cassidy Legebokow were also rewarded for solidly demonstrating their skating skills in both creative and elements categories. Of special note Cassidy was awarded gold for her Star 1 elements, Makenna received silver for her Star 2 elements, and Alexandra, Alexis and Sophie received bronze for their Star 2 elements.
