    From what I saw from Ashley in Japan, versus Mirai in Finland, Ashley doesn't need anyone to make the road to the GPF easier. She'll EARN it with what she has now. (Just stay healthy and injury free!)

    Sarah and Drew's "Inside Edge" blog today has a quote from Ashley Wagner about her new FS dress and a chat with Gracie Gold ahead of her Grand Prix debut at Skate Canada: http://web.icenetwork.com/news/artic...&vkey=ice_news
    "In my short, we're focusing on holding spins; the less reviews you have during your program, the better," she [Gold] said. "And we're working on fixing the edge change in my triple flip. I want to put out really solid skates. I want to look like I belong with everyone there."
    ETA that Samantha Cesario tweeted from the JGP in Chemnitz, Germany after her 10th place SP earlier today:
    "Rough skate today. Hoping my hamstring feels better in the morning. #worldsunluckiest"

    Cesario is dealing with another injury? I feel like she's dealt with an injury every season since she's turned senior...

    I knew something was up when she placed 10th. But yay for Leah's 2nd in SP!

    Samantha withdrew from her second JGP. Guess she'll never make a JGPF (since this is her last eligible season right?)

    ^Wow. I'm beginning to think that Samantha has a body that doesn't agree with skating. She's always getting injured!

    What was the nature of her last two major injuries? Was it hamstring related?

    Yes, Samantha Cesario turned 19 in August so this is her last season of ISU Junior eligibility.

    A back injury forced Cesario to WD from 2011 Nationals and right before 2012 Nationals "she tore her left lateral collateral [knee] ligament (LCL) and was off the ice for six to eight weeks," according to this July 2012 Liberty article: http://web.icenetwork.com/news/artic...&vkey=ice_news

    This is what Cesario tweeted about her WD today:
    Really wish i could skate today but need to protect the rest of my season #noinjuriesfornationals Good luck to the rest of #teamUSA!
    Her next competition will be Eastern Sectionals, Nov. 8-12, to qualify for Nationals.

    ETA @USFigureSkating's tweet this morning:
    Samantha Cesario suffered a strained hamstring during practice before the SP. She withdrew from the competition prior to the free skate.
    Cesario will be fully evaluated upon her return home.

    OK, so Team Cesario is being super-cautious. Maybe this will preserve her for Nationals

    ^ Considering she's missed Nationals 2 seasons in a row, I could think that she and her team would be careful.

    Hicks has a bye through SWP Regionals to Pacific Coast Sectionals due to having had 2 JGP assignments. She's listed as WD in the SWP Senior Ladies SP starting order, I assume, because it was a late bye (just like Jay Yostanto was listed as WD in North Atlantic Junior Men last week and Shotaro Omori in SWP Junior Men this week).

    Her jumps are actually looking (to me) quite high, that lutz (despite the edge call) was probably the best lutz I've ever seen from her. She looks in great shape, too.
    Thanks! I'm very hopeful for Mirai this season. Sigh, still with the lutz edge calls but oh well at least she went for the jump. I hope she has some great skates at COC and at Nationals-and that she makes the World team.

    I don't know why Katarina Kulgeyko withdrew from SWP Regionals, but she had a tough outing in her Golden West SP (scored under 40) in early Sept. and withdrew from the FS. She was included in USFS' International Selection Pool (she had solid 5th place showing in her 1 JGP last year, was 9th in Junior at 2012 Nationals), but was never listed as a JGP alternate this season.

    I can re-post a summary (from Kiss and Cry) of notable ladies in Regionals action from yesterday here soon.

    Re: Cesario, if she just turned 19, isn't her ISU age 18 and doesn't she have one more season of junior eligibility?

    Cesario will be 19 as of July 1, 2013, which means she will age out of ISU Junior in 2013-14.

    ETA that I don't think ioana will mind if I re-post her "live" play-by-play comment about Yasmin Siraj's "Seven Years in Tibet" FS at New England Regionals from Kiss and Cry just now (she scored 101.85, her highest FS score of the season so far):
