They were closely followed by Madison Simms and Gianna Galante (3rd), Ethan Dibble and Ryan Donovan (5th) and Ben and Hattie Hoham (7th). Chesterton also performed admirably in the novice division with Riste Miroski and Mark Jewison coming in fifth and Milena Veltri and Emma Bolinger in sixth place.
