Thanks, chipso1! These 4 scored higher in their first international than their highest known score in Senior level summer competition, which is always good to see! (ditto for Nina Jiang in Junior)

I've included all the JGP/Senior B international scores to date (for comparison's sake) and have added the Regional bye information I know about in Scoretracker for the Senior Ladies who have competed so far this season and/or are expected to compete at Regionals next month: http://unseenskaters.wordpress.com/scoretracker/2010-2011-senior-ladies-results/

They have all passed their senior FS tests and are competing senior nationally this season. They have all competed senior programs at club competitions this summer, too.

Do you think there may be fan/skater resentment towards Felicia Zhang getting a bye to senior ladies at nationals?

Resentment from whom?

She has a bye? Skate America?

Anyway, I think you mean "resentment" in the sense that Felicia is new to the senior level, while Zawadzki, Gilles, and Czisny have to compete at least once before they get there. Well, that's the way things work out sometimes. It's just luck of the draw. It's not like those 3 should struggle to qualify.

Both. ;)

She just made her singles international debut at the JGP in Germany. She finished 7th.

Ah, I see. I guess now is the time to play around before it's too late.

Lindsay Davis (12th at the JGP in Graz, Austria) is not listed in the Senior Ladies starting order for SWP Regionals so that means she, like Becky Bereswill who is not competing singles at EGL Regionals, is also focusing on pairs at Nationals this season.

I think that's a smart move for her. She has nice basics and style, but her technical content will hold her back in singles, while in pairs, it will be an advantage. She and Lefterhis were skating really well this summer.

Her bye in ladies comes from competing in pairs. I can kinda see some grumbling if more such byes are granted in the future.

Given Zhang's results, perhaps she's better off doing one or the other, IMHO. She has a reliable lutz, and had she been able to focus on singles perhaps she could have done better in Germany. But sr ladies is a tough field, esp at Eastern.

The whole bye system is based on luck. Skaters can get a bye to Nationals for competing in a Senior B event that conflicts with Sectionals, yet if Czisny (or anyone else competing on the Grand Prix who isn't yet qualified to Nats.) tripped off a curb the day before Sectionals and twists her ankle, she wouldn't get a bye to Nationals. It's absurd. I have absolutely no problem with Felicia receiving a bye... But I do have a problem with skaters who have even more to do than Felicia on the GP this year (meaning 2 assignments) not having byes.

I don't think I've ever heard of a skater with 2 GP's having to do Sectionals. I still think somebody at USFSA will soon make a decision to that effect.
