Oh and I wonder if Agnes is working on fixing the lip yet. I know Tom helped Rachael successfully fix her flutz so maybe he can do the same for Agnes's lip?
I think the other thing Agnes has to fix is her right arm/shoulder. It needs to be pulled back further to ensure she has enough torque for the rotation and to ensure she doesn't overrotate the takeoff.
A few updates...
Unfortunately, Kiri tweeted this week that her injury (unspecified stress fracture) will keep her off the ice for 2 more weeks, plus 2 additional weeks of no jumping after that. So it appears her competition debut will delayed for a while.Kiri Baga - registered for Senior at a Minnesota club comp. in late June
Reposting the following about Amanda Dobbs from the Programs thread in GSD:
Vanessa Lam currently has the highest Senior Ladies club comp. score of the young season (146.77 at the All Year FSC comp. in early June).

Somebody asked about Angela Maxwell's plans in the Programs thread in GSD and I'm cross-posting my reply here.
There hasn't been any official-type announcement that I know of, but it doesn't look like Angela Maxwell will be competing this season, unfortunately. I just noticed that Maxwell's name (link) has been removed from the Team C envelope on USFS' Athletes/Team USA page.

Ditto on Ziggy. I should know by now that fantastic skaters named Angela with amazing potential are only going to break my heart. She had some good accomplishments, but she really could have done some incredible things...I'm glad I was able to enjoy her for as long as she competed anyway.
So sad. I loved Angela's skating. She was one of a kind and so much fun to watch.
Adelina Sotnikova is the 2014 Olympic champion!
^^ Agreed! It's funny, I'm also a big fan of Angela Wang, who despite her 7th place finish in juniors at nationals, I'm really hoping gets JGP assignments this season (I felt she was a little wuzrobbed at nationals, she's better than Davis and as good if not better than Baga and Jiang, all of whom beat her). I guess there just must be something about skaters named Angela
If Angela was removed from the USA envelopes AND the international selection pool, does that mean that she has essentially scratched on the whole season, or just the fall season? Skaters have had injuries in the summer before, but they didn't get removed from the envelopes. One would pretty much need to tell USFS "I'm out, don't count on me anymore" to get taken out of the envelopes, right? So although crzesk8dad's news sounds hopeful (and thank you very much for it!)...I just don't know what to make of it.
Does Angela have a bye to Nationals?
Yes, I agree, that is strange. Also, she is in Texas? Has she moved back to the Midwestern Section now? I actually hope she does, because the Senior Ladies field at Easterns is already shaping up to be a very difficult event.
Well, it doesn't matter what section she's in if she's not competing this season. :p But who knows. But yes, Easterns is tough this season, potentially.
