    Who are the novice and junior teams new out of the coast? I heard that several have new partners but it is just rumor. Anyone know for sure?

    I am a little confused after reading the comments on here and watching the videos. Maybe someone that is more up technically on pairs than me can help. I watched the senior pairs three videos and understand that it is early for these teams and have no problems with the second and third place teams, they are very talented by the way. I also like D/S but to see them 10 points higher? I watched them do a triple twist where Donalan landed on her own(girl power!) and Andrew did not catch her he was leaning forward and that can be a dangerous issue hopefully it was just an off twist(maybe they are reworking it?) , UR a triple toe and totally out of sinc, a death spiral that was inside? and barely made it around, D almost fell on the cheated two footed throw (kudo's for end of program and not falling she is stronger than gets credit for), and foot work that was not connected at all, and pair spin marginal. I'm not trying to bash I like them. I have been online to see the comps to their score and am shocked. IT seems they got total credit for everything even though it was not done. The lift was good. That score is the same as some amazing pairs last season skating really well. So maybe the judges were just giving them the score they could get if skating clean to give them confidence but 10 points higher then the other teams? and a comp score to pairs that skated really well last year ?


    They are so talented in components. IT was so nice to see them out there so early I was just confused on the scores. I know there are many on here that are very very good at explaining the scoring system.

    With this scoring does anyone have an idea how the summer competitions may stack up?
    This all said maybe the scores this Oly year will be going up? Maybe components are the focus this year? That could make sense then. Good luck to all the teams!

    Five favorite things with Felicia Zhang and Nate Bartholomay: http://web.icenetwork.com/news/artic...&vkey=ice_news

    From today's "The Inside Edge" blog on IN:
    On the ice, [Becky] Bereswill is enjoying her new partnership with Josh Reagan. They have a new short program, choreographed by Massimo Scali, to "Clair de Lune."
    ETA:
    Colin Grafton has updated his profile on IPS: http://icepartnersearch.com/showbio.php?i=4181

    I posted this hearsay information earlier in this thread (5/30): "Elise Middleton is skating with Anthony Evans from Texas (he's 21 & too old for the JGP, unfortunately) and they are coached by Peter Oppegard."
    (I usually don't consider any new teams to be "for sure" until after they have competed together.)

    I have heard of three new Pacific Coast pairs – but, as already pointed out, information of this sort should be considered strictly "hearsay" until confirmed.

    In Aliso Viejo, CA, presumably training with Meno and Sand, Hannah Klopstock and Michael Johnson have teamed up. Klopstock most recently competed with Chadwick Phillips while Johnson was formerly paired with Caitlin Belt with whom he finished in 9th place at nationals.

    It looks like another new junior pairs team training there is AnnaMarie Pearce and Jason Pacini. Pearce's most recent partners were Craig Norris and Matej Silecky and Jason Pacini was the 2012 U.S. Novice Pairs silver medalist with former partner Caitlin Fields. Fields and Pacini were the 7th place junior team this year at nationals.

    Finally, Juliette Erickson (who last competed as a novice pair skater with Connor Fleming) appears to have partnered with Alex Brauner. I am not familiar with Brauner's background, but he seems to have skated in Canada previously. I do not know if they intend to compete as a novice or a junior pair.

    This story is mainly about Randy Gardner BUT there are also tidbits about other pairs skaters (among other skaters): Becky Bereswill (she's been modeling and is loving her partnership with Josh Reagan) and Fontana and Zimmerman, who just had a second baby.
    BARK LESS. WAG MORE.

    Yes, Alex is Canadian. He competed in Novice dance for the last two seasons placing 22nd at Challenge last season and 20th the season before. In 2011/2012 he also competed Novice men placing 8th at the ABNWTNUN Sectionals. As far as I know that was the last time he seriously competed singles, however I could be wrong. Do you know if they will compete for the USA or Canada?

    Cross-posting in the U.S. and Canadian Pairs threads...

    My latest hearsay info (from two different reliable sources) is that Caitlin Fields, who will be 18 in September, is relocating from Scottsdale, Arizona (where she trained under Doug Ladret) to Montreal to partner with Sebastian Arcieri, 19, and compete in Canada.

    ETA that Fields/Pacini never competed internationally because he was too old - their bio on IN: http://web.icenetwork.com/skaters/de...d=40264&mode=P
    Arcieri skated with Natasha Purich last season - they competed on the JGP and won the Junior silver medal at 2013 Canadians.

    Thanks for the information, heard they were doing well but not sure what level Juliette and Alex will compete. Elise is doing junior right? Any other new teams for novice? None are posted on unseen skaters for Pacific. Didn't another team split? David something?

    It was mentioned earlier in the thread that Lianna Thomas/David Botero (N10 at 2013 Nationals) have split. Teams will be listed in Unseen Skaters' Pairs Scoretracker after they have competed and their results/scores are known.

    Good luck to all. Especially interested in seeing how all the US Senior pairs look. So far, decent choices in music.

    Alexa Scimeca/Chris Knierim debuted their new SP last night and looked solid on all their elements - 65.69 (38.43/27.26).

    2 new pairs that debuted at the Broadmoor Open: Joy Weinberg/Michael Lueck (Junior) and Macy Peterson/Daniel Arsenault (Novice).

    WOW. Obviously, these scores don't matter too much in the scope of things yet still impressive. They must've been clean. I also doubt we'll get a video of this.

    S/K's elements included a very high 3twist, throw 3F, sbs 3S (not quite landed in unison), lasso entry into star lift - believe this entry is new for them.
