Patricia Fortunato, who skates out of the Summerland Skating Club, had the chance to compete at the 2019 West Coast Challenge Adults Competition on Feb. 9.
This was her first attempt at an adult competition and she managed to have a clean program, snagging a second-place finish in the Silver Interpretive (young adults) category with a new personal best of 29.11 points.
Fortunato hopes to continue competing in adult competitions and is planning on moving up to Gold Interpretive as well as Gold Freeskate at the 2019 Super Series Final Competition in March.
Fortunato works with Summerland Skating Club head coach Louise Evans and her sister, club coach Sabrina Fortunato.
