Nepean Skating Club product Alaine Chartrand kicked off her 2017-2018 season in low gear at the Autumn Classic International event from Sept. 20-23 in Montreal. The 21-year-old placed 6th in both the short program and free skate to finish 5th overall, scoring 162.42 points – well off the 182.07 she earned on an injured ankle to win bronze at last season’s Canadian Tire National Skating Championships in Ottawa. Chartrand will be chasing 1 of 3 available Canadian women’s positions on the PyeongChang 2018 Winter Olympic team this season.
