Kiri Baga (10th in her senior debut at Nationals) plans to continue in singles next season and has formed a new pair team with Taylor Toth -- see the US Pairs thread in GSD for the article link: http://www.fsuniverse.net/forum/showpost.php?p=3516492&postcount=814

:confused: It's too light so she should have gone even lighter? :confused:

No no no. My bad - I meant a couple of shades DARKER. :lol:

Congrats to Ashley for coming off a 4th place finish at Worlds! The best US ladies placement since Kimmie's fourth place finish at Worlds in 2007 five years ago. I wasn't a big fan of hers, but now she's made me into a believer. :D Her reputation with the international judges will continue to grow and I only see things going up from here for her in the future.

fantastic season for Ashley, a very good finish, the FS was impressive as it shows off the passionate skater she is. too bad for that step out of Thursday. she just needs to conquer the sp monster. i know she can do it. way to go Ash! you're one of the best in the world!

wonder if Ashley was in the dark as to Czisny's placement after lp before she skated?

if not, what pressure for her to be under to save the 2 spots on her own!

It wasn't really much of a risk...honestly, it wasn't. All Ashley had to do was place at least 12th.

Either way, congrats Ash! Knew you had it in you. Always did. :)

I've always considered Ashley a good US #2 because while she seldom rocks it (except at 4CC), she seldom bombs either. I'm surprised she's not sent to the world championship sooner. (I know bad luck at nationals and all, but still, she really would have done okay at worlds the previous years --okay meaning top 12)

But now, perhaps she can be US #1. :)

Ashley has always been one of my sentimental favorites, and I'm estastic over Ashley's prospects in the upcoming seasons. If these girls are pacing for Sochi, this was the season to have a breakthrough and thank goodness that at least one of the US ladies pulled it off!

I hope Ashley can now build a reputation so she can be held up like the other skaters XD

Well she was close to getting a medal... But whatever, 4th isn't bad at all at your second Worlds. After all, Sasha was 4th at her second Worlds... I guess that means she'll be 2nd next year! :D
