    Ross Miner is also guaranteed a SGP invite based on his bronze medal finish at the JGPF. Also, hopefully Eliot Halverson will be competing at EGL and Mids this season after not making Nationals last year (if he's fully recovered from his back injury, that is).
  3. Sylvia

    Sylvia Prepping for club comp. season!

    So far, Keegan Messing, Ross Miner, Jason Wong, Alex Johnson, Joshua Farris, Scott Dyer and Sean Rabbitt have registered for the Senior Men's event at Liberty (see the event thread in Kiss and Cry).

    :cheer2: Keegan :cheer2:

    Oh and I'm friends with Christopher Caluza... he said his coach has given him permission to move up for the upcoming season. He has yet to 'make it official' though.

    I would assume that he is. I've only seen him teaching lately, but we did discuss his choreography a bit for the upcoming season.

    I'd be shocked to see Lysacek, Weir and Bradley still in the game this year. Ahm jes' sayin'...

    They are in envelope but I do not think they will compete.

    If those juniors move up, then what a battle! :eek:

    Question: Since Jason Brown won Junior Men, is he required to move up?

    Christoper Caluza just updated his status on FB saying he passed his senior free skate test and that he is now a senior, for anyone wondering. :)

    Isn't Keegan registered for Liberty? His mother said it's a definite that he will do it.

    ETA: Re-read your post. You only did junior men. ;) Got it.

    I think Evan is definitely done. Bradley probably too. Weir is listed in the GP series so maybe that means something, then again maybe not.

    I also wanted to add that Andrew Gonzales has switched coaches, he told me he is now being coached under Frank Carroll.

    I was surprised about the US men getting the short stick with the Grand Prix assignments. Despite not having a guaranteed event, Grant Hochstein was majorly robbed IMO and should've at least got 1 event.

    As for Dornbush and Mahbanoozadeh, while their seasons weren't great they were decent enough for an invitation, at least more deserving than Alexander Kazakov, Jeremy Ten or even fellow american Stephen Carriere all who did get invited.

    Now all three are stuck in skating limbo :( (also known as Senior B events:D).

    I was bored today so I decided to come up with my own rankings using US Nationals 2010 results combined with summer results scores. I placed the qualifiers for the tiers in parentheses. There's no exact science to how I placed them within the tiers- I took into account last season's international results to some degree for that. Summer scores are listed next to their names- thanks to the IJS Scoretracker for the easy access to those scores!

    Summer Rankings thru August 8, 2010

    TOP TIER (TOP 6 @ 2010 or 200+ score)
    1. Jeremy Abbott
    2. Ryan Bradley
    3. Adam Rippon
    4. Keegan Messing 209
    5. Brandon Mroz

    TIER 2 (TOP 12 @ 2010 or 180+ score)
    6 Armin Mahbanoozadeh 193
    7 Richard Dornbush 191
    8 Stephen Carriere 191
    9 Jason Brown 180
    10 Ross Miner (intl results exception)
    11 Grant Hochstein 166
    12 Jason Wong 167
    13 Jonathan Cassar 149

    TIER 3 (2010 Nats or 150+ score)
    14 Parker Pennington 174
    15 Alex Johnson 174
    16 Tommy Steenberg 170
    17 William Brewster 167
    18 Joshua Farris 156
    19 Dennis Phan

    There haven't been any videos that I know of, but Jeremy supposedly gave very impressive performances at Champs Camp. :encore:

    If any of these skaters qualify for the JGP Final, will that give them a bye to Nats? Pacs is looking awfully packed (pardon the pun).
  29. Sylvia

    Sylvia Prepping for club comp. season!

    Yes. Keegan Messing and Ricky Dornbush (Pacific Coast) and Joshua Farris (Mids) are the Senior level men currently assigned on the JGP. I've heard that Jason Brown (Mids) may be staying Junior, but don't know if he tested up or not before the Sept. 1st deadline.

    Here's my (unofficial) list of Senior men who currently have a bye through Sectionals in November to 2011 Nationals.

    Bye to 2011 Nationals for placing top 5 at 2010 Nationals: Abbott, Lysacek (if he competes), Bradley (if he competes), Rippon.

    Bye through Sectionals to Nationals due to their GP assignment(s):
    Mroz & Miner (China), Carriere & Mahbanoozadeh (Skate America).

    Break down by section:
    Eastern - Rippon, Mahbanoozadeh, Miner
    Midwestern - Abbott, Lysacek, Bradley, Mroz
    Pacific Coast - no byes at this time

    Mroz, for example, may have to do Regionals in October if there are more than 4 Senior men registered in Southwesterns (I count 5 right now). More on this topic later.

    Lysacek is not competing this season, Sylvia.

    Bradley is still undecided, but that was August 19 when he told me. Now I am out of the loop, because the Sept 1 deadline has passed.

    Golden West results:

    1 Richard Dornbush
    All Year FSC 206.25 1 1
    2 Sean Rabbitt
    Glacier Falls FSC 171.59 2 3
    3 Douglas Razzano
    Coyotes SC of AZ 164.70 5 2
    4 Andrew Gonzales
    All Year FSC 163.26 4 4
    5 Jonathan Cassar
    All Year FSC 159.39 6 5
    6 Christopher Caluza
    All Year FSC 158.92 3 6
    7 Robert Przepioski
    Peninsula FSC 114.28 7 7

    WD Luis Hernandez
    Mexico FS Federation
    WD Austin Kanallakan
    Los Angeles FSC

    Caluza fell on footwork and his triple lutz. Andrew told me he doubled his salchow and he fell on another jump. I don't know anything about Cassar's skate, but my heart is broken for him :(
