SKATE STARS: Summerland Skating Club skaters Kiara Watts, 12, and Zoe Pirlo, 10, won two silver medals each in the Queensland Novice League in the categories of dance and figure artistic skating.

The youngsters managed to gain this impressive result out of a competitive field of 200 skaters.

For the novice category, skaters primarily skate to the waltz.

The sport of artistic skating has seen a resurgence in the area in the past two years.

The Summerland Skating Club is looking for more skaters to join the team and has development classes on Saturdays, with full training on Wednesdays and Fridays.
