Monday March 4, 2013 - Eric Spence (14), a member of the Kamloops River City Racers Speed Skating Club, raced to a gold medal finish in the 3000m points race at the Provincial Short Track Championships held in Mission over the weekend.  (This result for Eric was even more impressive given the fact Eric fell (was tripped) on lap 9 but managed to catch the pack by lap 17 and then go on to pass the pack and win the race). In Eric's other events he finished second in both the 1500m and 400m and fourth in the 200m pursuit.  Eric was competing in a field of 10 males in the T2T14 division and finished second overall. On the strength of these results Eric qualified to compete at the Western Canadian Championships to be held in Canmore BC March 23 and 24.  
In other action, eldest sister Tori (20), was competing at the North American Championships in Salt Lake City and raced to a 5th place finish in the 3k event and 9th place in the 1500m.
