    Just go ahead and stick a fork in my heart and tell me Divette and Utah are breaking up.

    I forgot to mention earlier that Colin Grafton is still listed on IPS but hasn't updated his profile since November 2012 so I don't know if he is currently looking.

    Elise is certainly a lovely skater with gorgeous lines, and seemingly mature artistically for her age. How tall is she, btw?

    I think Elise needs a stronger and taller partner and also a guy that can jump and won't drop her like what happen in practice and in the program I heard that she got dropped doing a lift on ice over summer and broke her front teeth

    ^^ It was my observation as well that Elise (although she and Hennings looked good together) appears to need a taller and a stronger partner, and also someone who might better match her graceful lines and maturity. Hennings looks to be a very good skater, and I'm sure that if he's still interested in skating he will improve with more maturity, dedication, and strength training.

    Tarah Kayne/Daniel O'Shea (7th at Nationals) and Kiri Baga/Taylor Toth (8th) are on the entry list for the Challenge Cup in The Hague, Netherlands (Feb. 21-24) - see event thread started in the Kiss and Cry forum. DeeDee Leng/Timothy LeDuc (9th) are listed as substitutes. Good to see 2 of these new pairs getting a chance to compete internationally so soon after Nationals! This will be the international debut for Kayne, and also for O'Shea at the senior level (he previously competed at one JGP in singles).

    I really do hope that Leng and LeDuc get an international in the fall, if not sooner. Once she has built up stamina, I think that this team could be as good as Ina/Zimmerman. They have a similar 'feel' to them in my opinion. Talk about a huge transition-- DeeDee was so unpolished when she won juniors, and now to see the beautiful well-packaged pairs lady that she has become-- nothing short of miraculous!

    Totally agree. They have an insane amount of potential. And they can jump!

    I am very excited about Leng/Le Duc and quite a few other pairs! I'm very excited to see how K/O and B/T fare at their first international.

    US Pairs!!

    I love that the USFS is giving some of these kids an opportunity so soon after nationals as well. So many new young teams with potential at Nationals this season, lets hope this support from the fed and getting some international events helps motivate them to stay together.
    I meant to take the high road.... but I missed the exit.

    I think there are some good boys in California that have done pairs before that Elise could partner up with there was one boy on IPS from Los Angeles California but I don't know what happened to him he is not on IPS anymore.

    I really hope that Davis/Ladwig splitting isn't true. I thought they have really improved and done well at Nationals for a team who've been skating such a short time together.

    They have known each other for years so they talk when they meet at various skating events. What is there to discuss?
