Taylor Bennett and Gabriella Jackson have been champing at the bit to compete on the ice.

For the first time in two years, the two Port Dover Skating Club members took part in a competition with smiles on their faces, when they hit the ice for the Super Series – Stratford December Classic. 

Bennett enjoyed her first taste of competition since the Canadian Nationals in February 2020. As per usual, Bennett showed up with her huge smile competing in the Special Olympics Level 4 Freeskate. 

Jackson participated in the same competition in the Star 5 Freeskate category, placing fourth, just narrowly missing bronze by .01 points. 

She also competed in the Star 5 Men’s\Women’s artistic category where she placed 12th.
