Daria Carr, a 14-year-old Okanagan Mission Secondary student from the Kelowna Skating Club, was assigned to the Egna Trophy on the strength of her silver medal finish at the Canadian National Figure Skating Championships at Vancouver in January. She represented Canada at Egna-Neumarkt, Italy last week.
Carr opened with a 34.02 points finish in the Advanced Novice Women’s short program, which included 2 successful triple jumps.
She then scored 57.4 points, while debuting a new free program.
Her total score of 91.42 points would place her 5th overall in the field of 22 skaters.
The Advanced Novice event featured athletes from Canada, Italy, Austria, Hungary, and Andorra.
The Egna Trophy was Carr’s first international assignment. The Kelowna skater will now advance to the Junior level for the 2018/19 season.
