Fourteen Sun Valley Figure Skating Club members showed the results of their training March 10-13 during a big invitational meet in Wyoming.

Bringing out over 200 skaters from 10 states to Snow King Center, the 11th annual Jackson Hole Invitational offered competition in 110 classes.

Sun Valley skaters captured seven first places, six seconds and 10 thirds.

Coaches Holly Wheelers and Darlin Baker accompanied the young skaters.

Baker said, "These hard-working athletes exemplify the spirit of the sport. Even when they have to compete against each other, they applaud their teammates with all their hearts, they congratulate each other in victory and they console each other in disappointment. We are so proud of these remarkable kids.

Taking first places were Alexandra Harten (twice), Lauren Farr, Julianna Lamb, Taylor Figge, Kenny Pratt and Telar McClure. Darlin's Darlins were fourth and sixth in Preliminary Team Compulsory Moves.
