Music: Sing Sing Sing (our third and final version of the day). I relaly enjoyed this skater and program. Has a spunky look - similar to Becky Hughes.Fell on 3 toe. 2 axel. 2 loop. Spin just OK.

Music: Dreams. Coach is Robin Wagner. She did a good job, but it was not as impressive as some of the others to me. Touched her free foot down on the 2 axel. 3toe-2toe. 2 loop. Soft program to soft music. Not my special love, as you know so that explains my bias.

Music:Secret Garden, Illumination. Very strong skater. Great 3 sal-2to. and wonderful 2 axel. Then she popped the 2 loop. Argh. She was looking very strong til then.

Music: Trish Trash Polka. What a joy this athlete is to watch Big Strong jumps. Nice smile. Just solid. I would have her much higher than she is. HUGE 2 axel. Great 3 toe-2 toe. solid 2 loop. Forward Illusion - like five in a row. Just amazing. Love this!!!Ciahces are Rod and Karen Ludington. Chor is Karen as well. Kudos to the whole team!!

Music:Summertime. I LOVED this program. So soft and soulful.2 axel. 3 sal-2toe. 2 loop. Beautiful skater.Chor by Becky Calvin was just lovely. This is how to do a nice soft program and NOT be boring and cookie cutter.

Music: Turandot. Our only Turandot of the day. This can't last. 3sal-2toe. 2 tano loop. 2 axel. nice spins. Spirals were weakest of this event. Seems an odd choice of music for someone without strong spirals.Maybe they were trying to push her....

Music:Any Dream Will Do. 2 axel. 3-2t. 2 loop. Nice music here. Her costume was distracting for us. Not sure it will show on the photo. But tophalf almost looked like she was spray painted in gold.

Music: Santana Medley. 2 axel. Weak spirals for this bunch. 3 loop looked short and was pitched forward-2 toe. 2 loop ok.

Music: Damn Yankees (but it includede Hernando's Hideaway, which is from Pajama Game...). 3lutz is big, but Jamaie said it is a flutz./ Combined it with 2 toe. 2 loop. Love the music.

Music: Classical Gas. 2 footed the 2 axel. fell on 3 sal. nice combo spin. 2 loop OK.
Victoria Rackohn, All Year FSC - Photos: Sectionals Short
Music:Gypsy Flamenco. Not even close on her 3 sal. free leg way too far away. got maybe 1.5 rotations and cam out in spread eagle posture. fell on h3 2 axel. 2 loop fine. Lovely artistry, toe point, etc...

Music: After The Rain. 3lutz-2 toe. Lutz was clearly very short of rotation. Like almost 1/2 turn. 2 axel was only a little short. 2 loop fine. Great spirals and spins. Very flexable.
