Very exciting to see Ava Marie’s improvements since the Junior Grand Prix last year! Excited to see whether she will have a good free skate again like last week. Go Ava!

To be fair to Lindsey I could tell right away from seeing her in the warm up she is experiencing a growth spurt, which we know can really affect the jumps for a time. Isabeau too has grown three inches since last spring. Tough for these women to enter the seniors for the first time while adjusting to some pretty significant physical changes.

Maybe a “good” time to be entering seniors rather than the year before the next Olympics?

Is this her first senior Grand Prix medal?

a few weeks ago folks were wondering why we didn't send Sonja HILMER to more events, instead of sending Gold and Andrews to GP. US has quite a few inconsistent performers. We have seen enough of them to know there are quite a few who can go from tanking a competition, to doing quite well in the next one (and possibly not doing so well the next again). Camden last season, from nationals to 4cc, then to world, will be a great example.

I also remember Megan Wessenberg who really had issues with the pre-gp event to finishing a respectable 6th in Skate America.
Having that said, I would wait for another event before anointing anyone :D
