Sleeping Beauty.2 axel. 3lutz-3toe. 3 flip (2 footed). 3 loop. 3 toe. 3 lutz. Inside axel-pop sal. Emily is a pleasing skater to watch. Looks happy. Skates with nice speed and her moves are finished. I loved the inside axel-3 sal combo -too bad it missed here.

Rahp. on a Theme of Paganini.3 loop (almost sat down - put other foot down and saved it - may have been trying for a combo?) popped lutz. 3 toe (swing out). 3 sal (fall). 3 lutz. Not sure why Katy was so high at any point in this competition. She still is a VERY Jr-ish skater. Antoinette's theory is that the opening 2 seconds of her short was sop charming it carried her in the short (It was Rhapsody in Blue and the beginning was great, then it petered off), but I can't belive Gershwin had the power to help here too - though he is stong stuff (helloo-- anyone lsitening???)

Swan Lake. 3 lutz-2toe. 3 flip. 3 loop. 3 sal. 3 lutz (fall). 3 flip (fall). Really nice spins and spirals, but otherwise I wasn't too thrilled by the program. Standard ballet la-la.

Black Earth, Tango by Pezziola. 2 axel. 3 lutz-2toe. 3 flip-2toe. pop sl. 3 flip. 3 lutz. 3 flip. 3 toe. I would have pulled Bebe up in the short and free. I think I miught have had it: Michelle (no way to dodge this folks - those of you who hate her and think her time is past have to give her her technical consistancy), Bebe, Kimmie, Jen, Sasha. That would have given them the same Jr World and World team, but been fairer for what they did here at this event.

Pas De Deux (Nutcracker) 3 flutz (horrible flutz - is she ever on an outside edge?).-2toe. 3 flip-2toe. 3 loop (hand down). 3 lutz (fall). 3 toe. 3 sal. 2 axel. I would have sent her down the standings to never-never land with this.

Mack and Mabel.3 Flip. 3 lutz (hand down). 3 sal-2toe. 2 axel. 3 flip-1/2 loop-3 toe (hand down). 3 loop-2toe. 3 flip. MIssed fly out fo spin - did again. Dani looked a little...reserved? Angry? throughout this program. Maybe determined? Anyway - it didn't really fit Mack and Mable and I think hurt her second mark quite a bit.

Bolero. 3 flip-2toe. 3 lutz-2toe. 3 flip. 2 axel. 3 sal. 2 lutz (oops) 3 toe. This program seems empty to me. I will be very happy to see the Code of Points version - I do not doubt Michelle can fill this up with stuff - she just has to be pushed. I got no chills here this year.

Daphnis and Chloe. I know she is the greatest thing since sliced bread, but the ballerina la-la soft stuff is just not my cup o' tea. Technically she rocked. And I think she should have been higher than 3rd by the time the dust setteled, but she is off to Jr. Worlds, so whatever, I guess. 3 flip. 3 lutz-2toe. 3axel (this was around - there was a little hitch on the landing, but nothing huge). 3 loop. 3 sal. 3 lutz. Footwork seemed a little lite. 3 flip-?-?loop.
