I keep checking this thread looking for actual information (not that I don't enjoy the other stuff too). The most recent status I can find is in this post re her 6th place finished at Tokyo block event:
So, I take it this result qualifies her to move on to Sectionals. When is that held?She had a free program today and marked 76.33, finishing 6th overall with 115.56. There were a few skaters who were exempted from doing this game so her place would have been lower with them. I doubt she will finish top 6 at East Japan Sectional to qualify for Nationals.
(I find I am secretly hoping she has a miracle skate there and *does* qualify for her Nationals, so this thread can be closed.)
