    Eh, not impossible. Just highly improbable. If he already has been working with a new partner that we don't know about yet, and they use last year's programs so only she would have to learn them.......who knows....

    I'm not sure. Officially, those are the rules. But I have heard that there is some unofficial policy that skaters with 2 GP events are not forced to do regionals / sectionals. Of course, one exception proves me wrong.

    Yeah, that is the special bye/exception I mentioned. I remember in past seasons it was given for having to travel internationally to GPs or Senior Bs. I think 2 GPs almost always gets one out of qualifying for nationals because of the excessive travel conflicts.

    I have been racking my brain here trying to figure out how Rockne can keep his bye to Nationals. Unfortunately, there doesn't seem to be any way.

    He can't keep the bye he and Keauna earned for placing in the top 5 at 2010 Nationals.

    He would have to earn a new bye for a different reason if he were to have one with a new partner. As you note, that's unlikely this year, considering that a new partnership doesn't exist yet.

    I've been informed about a new Junior pair team: Lauren Gifford and Craig Norris, coached by Todd Sand and Jenni Meno in southern California. Gifford was 4th in Novice Pairs at Nationals 2 years ago and 10th in Novice this past season with Timothy LeDuc. Norris was 5th in Novice Pairs at Pacific Coast Sectionals this past season with Madeline Aaron. Gifford/Norris are a mirror pair (Norris rotates clockwise) and they have one year of ISU Junior age-eligiblity this season (he is 20).

    It's difficult right now to predict how the Junior Pairs field will look at Sectionals because some of the Novice pairs that are competing Junior this summer (looking for a JGP assignment) may drop back down to Novice for Sectionals, like several teams did last season.

    Carman/Reiss J5 (Coasts last year)
    Cain/Reagan N1 (Mids)
    Garza/Frazier N3 (Coasts last year; training in CO)
    Duarte/Grafton N4 (Easterns last year; training in CO now)
    Oltmanns/Santillan N6 (Mids last year; he belongs to a Coasts club)
    Guterres/Schumann N7 (Coasts)
    Agster/Civiello N8 (Coasts)
    Sowa/Leenen N9 (Easterns)

    New Junior teams known so far:
    H. Denney/O'Shea (Easterns; he belongs to a Mids club)
    Andrews/LeDuc (Mids)
    Bautista/Harris (Coasts or Easterns; training in MA)
    Gifford/Norris (Mids or Coasts; training in CA)

    I am bummed like everyone else about Rockne and Keauna - they had so much potential to me and was looking forward to their future.
    I do enjoy Caydee and Jeremy, but am now hoping that Evora & Ladwig are national champs this year - they have worked so hard and developed so much. Caydee & Jeremy can win in future years again.

    Nope...no way. The bye goes bye bye.
    Happy Skating!

    I just came across Chloe Katz's June 2010 journal update on Katz/Lynch's official site: http://www.figureskatersonline.com/k...ch/journal.php
    However, after rigorous physical therapy, four months later Joe and I are back into full training and my ankle is doing great.

    Their first competition (since their silver medal at Ice Challenge in Austria last October) will be Indy Challenge (July 29-August 1).

    Per skatingforums.com:
    --------
    According to wikipedia, Andrea Poapst (2010 COS Junior Lady) has teamed up with Chris Knierim, a Junior pair skater from the USA. Anyone know where this team is training, or which country they plan to represent?

    --------

    I confirmed this information with Chris at Broadmoor Open last week. They will be training in Colorado Springs with Dalilah Sappenfield. If Andrea passes all her required pair tests this summer, they will compete at the Junior Pair level.

    It was posted today in the Pairs/Dance post national breakups thread in GSD that Ameena Sheikh reportedly is skating pairs in Toronto with Michael Stewart. Sounds like they will compete in/for Canada?
