    A look at the top 8 junior women: 1. Soho Lee Undoubtedly the strongest junior woman in the field with great consistency, clean and tidy jumps, and beautiful presentation. Soho usually scores within the 180-190 range and if she can throw down a clean short program, has the ability to score in...

    U.S. Women [#3]: Skating Clean

    I think Karen would make a wonderful coach! Time and time again, Karen has been vocal about her less than stellar technique and what she would do if she could start her career all over again. Why not start all over again by teaching the next generation of skaters? I also think Karen’s situation...

    U.S. Women [#1]: The Contenders Unmask Themselves

    Summer competitions are in no way an indication of how a skater will perform once the season begins. Furthermore, no skater wants to peak at the beginning of summer. Thus, Alysa’s first summer competition and the results she produced are highly encouraging—made even more-so considering this was...

    Based on the results of the Junior Cup, I would hand out two assignments to Isabeau Levito, Lindsay Thorngren, Clare Seo, Mia Kalin, Josephine Lee, and Kanon Smith.
