Aside from a couple that may or may not develop into something special I think that the ladies are medicore at best. I will give exception to Mirai who I believe has yet to really hit her stride.

Probably Joelle is coming back to skate for US- I'm sure she learned her lesson about AZE and to go for another country would be really nuts. If she and Kimmie are back at Easterns, I hope that some of Melissa Bulanhagui, Samantha Cesario, Angela Maxwell, and Kristine Musademba get some conflicting assignments to thin out the field at Easterns a bit.

I tend to think Cesario will get JGP assignments and Maxwell and Musademba could get a Senior B and maybe a GP too so idk if that would give them a bye out of sectionals but it might.

Sasha would Def be a huge threat to be US National Champ if she is injury free

What about Taylor Firth? I know she's listed on IceParterSearch but has she said for sure whether she's officially done with singles? She'd be Easterns, too.

From what I know of the rules, I don't think Sasha can get Grand Prix assignments.........
Of course, she couldn't get any last year either. :confused:

I am sure Sasha Cohen could get 2 grand prix assignments like Wagner did last season when she was the U.S. pewter medalist (Wagner was also world junior bronze medalist).

There's also DeeDee Leng out of mids (she was injured for last year's qualifying competitions).

Why wouldn't she be able to get any GP assignments? She's ranked #4 in the U.S. If she wants to compete on the GP, then the USFS will make sure she's included.

She can probably get Skate America, but I don't think she will get another invitation after what happened last year.

So Kiri is going to compete as a senior at nationals, yes? Sounds like it based on the fact she's signed up to compete as a senior at upcoming competitions.I assume she will do another season on the JGP though, unless she requested SGP (she's old enough), but somehow I doubt it as then she'd likely only get 1 assignment.

Any word on whether Agnes decided on JGP or SGP for the upcoming season?

Oh and it was said in an interview that Yasmn Siraj will compete in the senior ladies division at nationals in the coming season.

A lot of these girls probably won't be at sectionals though, I assume a fair number will get JGP assignments and if a skater gets 2 assignments then she doesn't have to go to sectionals right? It seems fairly likely that Baga, Siraj, Cesario, Jiang, Davis, Zawadzki if she doesn't do SGP, will get at least 1 if not 2 JGP assingments, along with maybe Angela Wang or the novice girls who were 2 and 3, or some other random senior lady.

Not necessarily. Only if they make the JGPF or their JGP event falls within a one-week period of Sectionals. The three USFS Sectional Championships are scheduled for November 9-13, 2010, while the last JGP event in the Czech Republic wraps up October 17, 2010.

chipso1 is correct.

For the past several seasons, U.S. singles skaters assigned to a 2nd JGP have been receiving a bye through their respective Regionals in October (not Sectionals in November).

Is it possible for a skater to get 2 GP assignments, and still have to do Regionals and/or Sectionals?
