    The ones not marked "JR in US" in post #1 of this thread. But they (aside from Edmunds and Wang) have to qualify through Sectionals first.

    ETA:
    Eastern Sectional Senior: Kiri Baga, Yasmin Siraj
    Midwestern Sectional Senior: Ashley Cain, Mariah Bell, Barbie Long, Hannah Miller (Alissa Czisny)
    Pacific Coast Sectional Senior: Vanessa Lam, Rachael Flatt, Caroline Zhang (Leah Keiser) [Polina Edmunds, Angela Wang - bye to Nationals]

    Eastern Sectional Junior: (Madison Vinci)
    Midwestern Sectional Junior: Amber Glenn (Bradie Tennell, Morgan Flood)
    Pacific Coast Sectional Junior: Tyler Pierce (Amy Lin, Elizabeth Nguyen) [Karen Chen - bye to Nationals]

    Note: USFS' International Selection Pool skaters that did not compete internationally this fall and qualified for Sectionals are in parentheses above.

    Thanks, Sylvia,

    I think Senior Pacs thinned out slightly since the last list was posted due to Wang's inclusion at the JGPF?

    With Angela Wang as first alternate and getting Karen Chen's spot at JGPF, doesn't she get a bye for nationals?

    and that clears up another spot for PACs right?

    Doesn't Angela Wang belong to the Midwestern Section?

    Angela Wang trains in Colorado Springs but represents Salt Lake FS (her original club), which is in the Pacific Coast section. Wang will receive a bye through Coasts to Nationals as soon as Karen Chen's withdrawal from the JGP Final is official.

    I'm confused - although not unhappy - why Karen's bye persists despite her withdrawl from JGPF.

    She shouldn't be penalized due to this unforeseen circumstance. I'm sure the USFS would rather have her rest and be healthy for the rest of the season instead of competing injured at the JGPF.

    The rulebook says a bye is given to a skater who "earns a berth" at the JGPF. Karen did that. It does not say "competes at the JGPF."

    Thanks for the heads up - I started a thread in GSD : http://www.fsuniverse.net/forum/show...-Starbuck-quot

    Kiri Baga withdrew from the JGP Final in November 2010 amd kept her bye to 2011 Nationals (though she ended up withdrawing from Nationals as well) - USFS' press release: http://www.usfsa.org/Story.asp?id=45345&type=news

    Wow, such a nice photo. Three nice looking ladies. I hope they skate well regardless of the placement. I hope they get to do some shopping. What's Paris without shopping !

    What a cute picture. Does Ashley wear glasses? I think I've seen Christina wear glasses before but not Ashley.

    My dream team would include Mirai but sadly that's not (likely) going to happen.

    Did anyone else notice that Christina's TES score changed from 34+ to 30 in the SP?! That was really bizarre... Considering the loop was deemed underrotated after her program ended, it still doesn't make sense that 4 points disappeared out of nowhere. She lost 2 points on the loop (with the < and the negative GOE) so that would leave her at a 32, but it doesn't make any sense where the 2 points went...

    This is why I think the tracker should only show base value or show base value and GOE separately. It just looks fishy when the score drops like that without the explanation being obviously apparent. I can't see another explanation except that maybe her 3l was in the bonus time, so she lost 1.65 in base value alone. But the -GOE on that element should have been subtracted long before the end of the program. So I don't know where the other 2.37 would have come from. Even if that includes the -.7 GOE on the 3l, that still leaves another 1.67 unaccounted for. Maybe they put her steps in a L4 first, then lowered it?
