I thought Alexe's score was fine...the program didn't suit her at all and it's sad to see she's lost the flip and the lutz, but what she did, she did very well and it was a solid skate. I certainly can't think of who should be ahead of it, based on the skaters I've seen.
I think I'm blinded my intense dislike of the Gilles family in general

Thanks Sylvia for posting scores, I've had to miss a few when running out of the arena, so it is very much appreciated!!!
and as for anyone not taking me seriously, does it look I care what anyone on here really thinks? Not particularly, I never said I thought my comments were clever, I don't put words in your mouth, so stop doing the same to me.
Grenier started out so well, starting to come undone a little bit here, pity. What she has done though has been lovely, did she Zayak herself though? She's a potential for top 5 at Canadians.
Grenier looks to have taken a step up her presentation. Lovely blue dress as well. Some of the jumps still a tad at times though.
Chartrand with five solid triple jumps, couple of misses due to stamina but this girl has a bright future if she continues to work on her components and getting a little bit stronger, but what she did do, again, I enjoyed it, this girl can jump, and there's bits to improve for nationals, but a podium contender for sure.
3z half loop 3s looked ok rotation wise?
Sorry I missed most of the middle
3z hands down, almost down
3l fall, ur
3t 3t maybe hand down on first
3z spin out a little
Down on flip,
3z 2t nice height
Nice to see someone right out of junior with this much power in their skating.
Almost 100 for Chartrand! Good score
I am so in love with Daleman's technique on her jumps She gets so much distance and really just flies out there. Gonna be interesting to see who Skate Canada names to world juniors with Seguin, Daleman and Chartrand battling for two spots but Daleman did an excellent job today as well, turning into quite the battle at nationals! Lacoste may just find herself off the podium if she's not up to snuff...
Aww she's so excited!
3z ur and fall
3t2t2l maybe 2foot
2a2t foot down
Well she's unrefined, but so good to see canadian ladies who look to be in control of their jumps!
I must say, another impressive performance today from Julianne Seguin! Fall on the second lutz but everything else was well done, between her, Chartrand, Daleman and Osmond, I'm really excited for Canadians in the ladies event! Weird to say that but from what I've seen today, We have some very talented young skaters coming up Very impressed with what I've seen today.
Huge 3f 2t
2a! Clean skate!
One spin early on looked a little off, but wow on everything else!
I can't believe I'm watching a Canadian ladies competition.

One bobble on the combo spin but ALL jumps were clean for Kaetlyn, this girl is a superstar today! Wow, gonna be a MONSTER score I can't say it enough, so proud of what our women did today Ravi is doing wonders for her, keeping her level and calm, he's a great coach.
