    The SD for Skate America is in the books...just wanted to say I studied the scores between Shibs and H/D...very close there. For me, H/D were more enjoyable, I really like their SD, they did get a level 2 on their step sequence and I believe that was a big factor in the Shibs slightly above them as they received a level 3. I think the Shibs skated their SD very well but it wasn't a memorable program to me. Its really going to be a battle for silver and bronze at US nationals this year!

    You know, no matter who does make the Olympic team/doesn't make it, it's going to be heartbreaking. I mean I know who I'm hoping will make it, but it's still going to be so disappointing for whoever just misses out. Wish we could have four spots!

    Finnsteps seems a challenge to most teams so far. At Cup of China, Chock and Bates had level 4 in the first FS pattern but only level 1 in the second FS pattern. I can't tell from the video what the issue was (actually I wouldn't have been able to tell regardless where I am), but I'm sure Igor Shpilband will drill them till they get it. SD: 56.77 (26.36+30.41).

    :wuzrobbed This season is NOT going well for Lynn/Logan. Hope she recovers quickly and completely and that they can at least have a really strong showing at nationals.

    A quick report on Novice free dance at Eastern Sectionals today.

    Rebecca Lustig and Zachary Mileston (UDel) had a pretty good free dance (sorry I don't remember the music). No obvious mistakes except he stumbled early in the first twizzles, but he recovered to finest the sequence. They were third in FD and overall.

    Eliana Gropman and Ian Somerville (WISA) skated to western music. They skated fast and aggressive. A couple of bobbles: Their twizzles got too close and he stumbled a bit. In the midline nontouching step sequence, he again had a stumble near the end, otherwise they may have gotten a better level. They were so cute. During one of the lifts, Ian was holding Eliana with one hand and smoothed his hair with the other --- This choreographic detail makes me laugh out loud every time I see it.

    Gigi and Luca Becker skated to Bee Gees medley. They looked like a mini version of the Parsons, she with her hair in a bun and he with thick curls, and pretty good unison. Their twizzles were done well. In the midline nontouching steps, Luca stumbled near the end as well. They were also very cute doing the disco moves. My hats off to coach Novak for her expertise in choreographing age-appropriate but never boring programs for these kids.

    G/S and Beckers were neck-and-neck in both pattern dances and the FD. In the end G/S won by less than a point in total score.

    Can someone confirm whether or not the fourth Senior team that elected not to compete at Pacific Coast Sectionals is Gabriela Morrell-Zucker, All Year FSC / Andrejs Sitiks, Gardens FSC ?

    Thanks for the Novice FD report from Easterns, Jun Y!

    OMG, can ice dancers keep training after such a tear? I hope this is a minor tear
