Notes From 2007 Nationals - Spokane, Washington
Copyright 2007 Ann Jensen - all rights reserved


The final flight of this group show great promise (as do a few of the earlier kids). A lot of nice extension and artistry gong on here. Anyone know why Schuyler Eldridge wore street clothes to compete here? He had white pants and a polo shirt in the short and wore grey slacks and a black shirt here. His music for the short was Gypsy Waltz, so that didn't really fit.... Was there a luggage issue? Anyway - I was encouraged by the group as a whole and particularly enjoyed the winner, Eliot Halverson. I loved his skating last year and he is still as pleasing to watch.
