A Yankowskas/LeDuc pairing would be :swoon:. Big tricks (SBS triples should be no problem for them)+style+fab skating skills.

I have heard that Junior pairs 7th place finishers Anna Pearce & Craig Norris have split. Although they did well at nationals, they appeared to have reached the top of their potential.

I believe Anna landed two throw triples (including possibly the best loop of the group in the short?),a side by side double axel, and displayed lots of charisma. Definitely some talent there.
AnnaMarie Pearce, age 18, was added on icepartnersearch.com today. She lists herself as 4'10" tall, is a counterclockwise rotator, and states she can do lifts in both directions (Craig Norris rotated clockwise).

Tim LeDuc posted a highlight video of his skating on youtube today. He told me I could share the link (well, plus it is public). He's not listed on IPS, but is definitely seeking a partner.

His hydroblade (49 seconds) is insane.
I can't say why, exactly, but he rather reminds me of Jerome Blanchard. Anyone else see the resemblance? Hope Tim finds a great partner soon!

4'10?

I'd say 5'0 but hey it's IPS, everybody lies on there :lol:

She is eligible for the junior circuit next season still.

Also thought I'd mention that Denney/Frazer (4th) and Duarte/Grafton (8th) kept the US with three spots for next year's Jr Worlds! Simpson and Blackmer took 10th for those keeping score (:

So not only 3 teams, but none of the 3 teams will have to skate the QR round?

Agree mostly, but looking at him, I wonder how strong he is in the upper body for lifts and throws

What is the score? (or what does this mean?)

I don't think it really means anything. ;) I assumed the poster was just giving out the placements of all 3 US junior teams.

I was impressed with Denney/Frazier's confident skating in Minsk - they really peaked well at Nationals/Junior Worlds this season.

ETA:

She [AnnaMarie Pearce] is eligible for the junior circuit next season still.
It would be :cool: if she could find someone age-eligible - I believe Adam Civiello is the only JGP age-eligible U.S. guy listed on IPS who has any JGP experience.

Hate to say I told you so, but I called them winning a long time ago :P

If they can get the side by side triples consistent, they should be a force in senior!




Junior:

1. Denney/ Frazer
2. Simpson/ Blackmer
3. Oltmanns/ Santillan
4. Duarte/ Grafton
5. Aaron/ Settlage
6. Calalang/ Sidhu

What is the score? (or what does this mean?)

"For those keeping score (http://www.english-test.net/forum/ftopic40062.html)" comes from baseball. It used to be quite common for people to "keep score (http://mlb.mlb.com/mlb/official_info/baseball_basics/keeping_score.jsp)" during baseball games, recording the strikes/balls/errors/hits/runs/etc., especially when listening over the radio. Sometimes the radio announcers would let people at home know how the official scorekeeper had recorded a play when there was more than one option for how it might be scored. "For those keeping score, Jason Veritek's double has been charged as an error to Alex Rodriguez." :lol: (There's cool picture (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Baseball_scorekeeping#Example) of a traditional scorecard on the wikipedia page for Baseball Scorekeeping (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Baseball_scorekeeping).)

ETA: I've also heard it used in reference to music: "keeping score" means staying on time and playing correctly, I think.

Congratulations to the U.S. teams at Junior Worlds for their strong performances and for keeping three spots for next year's Junior Worlds! I believe their placements also mean that the U.S. will be able to send three teams to each 2012 JGP that includes pairs, unless those rules change again.

Thanks so much for the baseball education. I totally get that. Just wondering where the cross over comes to figure skating? Is it medals over the season? One competition? Just wasn't sure how the translation goes into this sport?

Thanks again......

It's just a saying. Like saying "for anyone keeping track".
