    Ugh! US Ice Dance at Sectionals...

    So, I was bored, and I was looking at how the Sectionals are shaping up, and this is what I have:

    Easterns:
    Cannuscio/Lorello
    Cannuscio/McManus
    Hoptman/Filchenkov
    Zuber/Herring
    Pilgrim/Lorello
    Halstead/Knopf

    Mids:
    Glastris/Allison
    Samuelson/Gilles
    Wingle/McKernan
    Schmucker/Munday
    Nardozzi/Traxler

    Coasts:
    Chock/Bates (Even though I think they would qualify at Mids, I think Igor and company are smart enough to send them to Coasts to protect Wingle/McKernan)
    Hubbell/Donohue (Could go to Mids, but Olson/Cowan and H/D share coaches... they would both qual out of Coasts easily.)
    Olson/Cowan
    Lichtman/Copely (Do they have to qualify? I would guess they would go to Coasts.)

    Looks like a couple of senior teams will be sitting at home this season. Sigh. I hate when that happens. There are only 18 teams trying for Nats. Let's send them all!!!

    Thanks for the list, Jayar. Which GP events and Senior B's will allow skaters to have byes to Nationals this season, anyone? I'd like to see Cannuscio/Lorello get SA now that Chock/Bates got SC.

    Last I heard, only the final 3 Grand Prix competitions -- NHK Trophy, TEB and Cup of Russia -- give skaters a bye through Sectionals to 2012 Nationals.

    Thanks, Sylvia! It's been quite a roller coaster ride this off season keeping up with the dance teams!

    ^ Sylvia, can you let us know when you find out if indeed it is the last 3? And whom it might affect (getting a bye or getting another spot at sectionals..). Thank you (in advance) as always.

    Only 3 senior teams have byes right now:

    Davis/White (qualified due to Nationals placement and also qualified due to Rostelecom assignment)
    Shibutani's (qualified due to Nationals placement and also qualified due to NHK assigment)
    Kriengkrairut/Giulietti-Schmitt (qualified due to Nationals placement and also qualified due to NHK assignment)

    There are a number of teams with club affiliations across 2 sections. Hopefully, they've spread themselves out wisely. Especially since I don't think there's a fill-in rule.

    It's silly that they should have to spread themselves out across the sections that they do- a fill up rule makes so much more sense. It's just one more layer of stress, trying to figure out what section everyone is skating out of!

    Lichtman/Copely are currently second on the alternates list for GP, and, odds are, they'll get a second spot, most likely in the last three events, unless USFS assigns them to the TBD at Skate America.

    Ugh! is right when it comes to the number of projected Senior dance teams at Pacific Coast Sectionals. This is an UNOFFICIAL list I've compiled from various sources. I've added last year's Nationals (or Sectional) results in parentheses.

    Easterns (4):
    Anastasia Cannuscio/Colin McManus (J3)
    Isabella Cannuscio/Ian Lorello (S6)
    Ginna Hoptman/Pavel Filchenkov (S10)
    Meredith Zuber/Kyle Herring (S9)

    Midwesterns (4):
    Alissandra Aronow (S11)/Collin Brubaker (S8) NEW
    Carina Glastris/Kevin Allison (J11)
    Madison Hubbell (S4)/Zach Donohue (S11) NEW
    Shannon Wingle/Timothy McKernan (S7)

    Pacific Coasts (8!):
    Madison Chock (S3)/Evan Bates NEW
    Janine Halstead/Robert Knopf (E-J7)
    Charlotte Lichtman/Dean Copely (J1)
    Kristen Nardozzi (S12)/Nick Traxler NEW
    Anastasia Olson/Jordan Cowan (J4)
    Katherine Pilgrim/Alex Lorello (S15)
    Emily Samuelson/Todd Gilles NEW
    Brittany Schmucker/Adam Munday (N6)

    Bye to Nationals: Davis/White (S1), Shibutani/Shibutani (S2), Kriengkrairut/Giulietti-Schmitt (S5).

    So Lichtman/Copely definitely aren't getting a bye b/c of CoC? That sucks....it will probably take them a full day to get back to MI and then they'll have to fly out to SLC a week later.

    Looks like some teams miscalculated who would or wouldn't go out of Coasts.

    Whoa-- Aronow and baby Brubaker are a team? I missed that. What's the deal with her citizenship? Is she American?

    Why would Igor be scared about Wingle/McKernan? They should have no trouble finishing at least 4th at Mids even with Chock/Bates. The other teams who would miss Nationals in the scenario aren't his teams. Am I missing something?

    It's just 'insurance'. Nothing about their abilities-- more about ensuring that you are getting your kids to the big stage.

    Deadline for Sectionals? Is it too late to rearrange?

    No, you can't rearrange. The deadline for registering in a particular Region is Sept. 1. You can't change your club affiliation or the Region you registered in. Usually pair and dance coaches talk beforehand to learn what the others are thinking of doing, so that they can spread out the teams across the Sections. It doesn't always work out evenly though.

    Alissandra Aronow's ISU bio when she skated for LTU from 2008-2010 says she was born in Bloomfield Hills [Michigan] USA.

    Thanks Sylvia. So is it the top 5 at Nationals that get a bye?
