Unless I 'm unaware that she broke her leg more than once this season, no not in her training, she broke her tibia in her freeskate at JGP Italy.

For some reason, I thought it was before she left for Italy. :o Thanks for the correction.

Coach/choreographer Phillip Mills and Ashley Wagner are quoted during 2012 Four Continents in this update (IceNetwork article dated Feb. 10, 2012):

2011 U.S. junior champion Courtney Hicks, who made her Junior Grand Prix debut last fall and won the JGP in Australia, is on the comeback trail after suffering a season-ending injury competing at her second JGP in Milan.

The 16-year-old fell on the opening jump in her free skate, detaching a piece of bone from the tibia in her right leg. She underwent surgery on Oct. 12.

Mills, one of Hicks' coaches in Aliso Viejo, Calif., had good news about his pupil.

"She's working on next season's programs," he said. "She's jumping again, doing double Axel and triple Salchow."

"She's doing really well," Wagner said of her training partner. "She's back on the ice skating and has plenty of time to work on all her other elements, other than jumps. Poor girl, I think she's going a little bit stir crazy.

"I definitely think that girl has enough drive, and if she wants to compete, she will compete next season."

Nice of Ashley to weigh in and give her analysis.

thanks for the heads-up Sylvia! I hope Ashley's win at 4CC and her commitment to choreography gives Courtney good inspiration and a stronger motivation to compete, and reversely Courtney's challenge to master difficult elements give Ashley an incentive to include a 3-3 combo or 2A3T in her free program. And while restarting her jumps I hope Courtney will work hard on eliminating her flutzing and that severe underrotation with her second 3R.

Phil Hersh just tweeted:
"2011 US jr fig skate champ Courtney Hicks changes coaches - from John Nicks to Ken Congemi. Hicks missed this year with leg injury."

(That's what I've heard through the "rink-vine" as well.)

Oh, I see there is a new IN article about this today! Healed Hicks gets fresh start with new coach (http://www.icenetwork.com/news/article.jsp?ymd=20120412&content_id=28490658&vkey=ice_news)

Hicks made the move last week to train with Congemi at the Toyota Sports Center in El Segundo, Calif., not far from where she used to train primarily at Aliso Viejo with John Nicks. Hicks said she will continue to work with choreographer Phillip Mills and will take lessons from Nicks once a week, but Congemi will be her primary coach.
Congemi coached Scott Dyer to a 10th place finish in the Senior Men's event at 2012 Nationals.

Courtney has tested up to Senior in the U.S. so she will enter U.S. qualifying competition (Southwest Pacific Regional/Pacific Coast Sectional) as a Senior. The article didn't mention her international intentions.

Does Ken Congemi still work with Frank Carroll, or is that old news?
