3x (step out). 3z (step out) 2t. 3f. Cool program ot Mexican Hat Dance. GReat use of music and excellent steps in between elements.

Parker Pennington - 17
3x (fall) 3z-2t (step out). 3 flip (flip out). I really liked this program. In the past I have gotten the fuss about Parker, but I saw some artistry this year, so I am pleased.

Matthew Savoie - 2
3x. 3f?-3t. 2 axel. Glad he got the content done, but the program wasn't up to his usual standardsof musicality IMHO. Just ok.

Scott Smith - 7
3x (sailed) 4s-3t (I didn't have a good angle to see how the landing was on the quad). spin weak. 3 loop (step out).Footwork and chor were still "lit" and he skated to that "music" that is the sound of clocks. But he is coming along.

Michael Weiss - 4
4t (2 footed)-3t. 3x (fall). 3 flip.
