The Great Skate Wolverines are proud of all our skaters. Occasionally we will put one in the spotlight with a more in-depth interview.
The current SKATERS in the SPOTLIGHT are Mandy O'Neil, and her daughters, Darian and Makayla. They are 3rd and 4th generation skaters following Mandy’s Mother Helen Derks, and her Grandmother Helen Dryer. The equipment has changed over the years, but not Mandy and the girls love for skating.

Coaches comments  (Coach Robb Dunn)
The O'Neil girls, mother Mandy and her daughters Darian & Makayla, bring determination, drive and lots of fun to the team.  They probably attend more practices as a whole than just about any skater or family on the team.  While Makayla is just having a lot of fun with it right now, Darian and Mandy definitely take their skating  seriously, yet at the same time have a great time with it.

Go here to view their individual interviews and more of Coach Robb Dunn's comments.
