United States Team Envelopes
Here's a link from the USFSA website giving the US team envelopes for the 2005-2006 season.
Michael Weiss, Matt Savoie, and Jennifer Kirk are on Team B this season.
Not surprisingly, Johnny Weir, Evan Lysacek, and Timothy Goebel are on Team A, as are Michelle Kwan and Sasha Cohen.
Good luck to them! Go, USA!
They put Bebe in Group C and Sandra Brubaker in Group B. Who is Sandra?
Sandra was last year national Junior champ. She was 17 then. She recently moved to Colorado Spring to get better training.
Thanks Jess - Now I remember, my notes from last year's Junior Ladices was nobody here very interesting.
LOL, it's Sandra Rucker -- Rockne Brubaker is of Miller/Brubaker. All junior champs automatically qualify for the Team B envelope.
Junior Ladies at '05 Nationals wasn't the most stellar event of recent years, but Christine Zukowski (silver) and Megan Oster (bronze) both have potential as rookie seniors this season based on what I saw from them at the Liberty summer comp. last month.
BTW, the most updated version of the team envelopes is on the Athletes page at: http://www.usfigureskating.org/Athletes.asp
There should be many new additions to the Reserve team in the near future based on the latest batch of international assignments this week (I'll start a new thread on that topic).
Sylvia, I read on FSU that Finlandia (10/7-9) is being cancelled due to the low number of entries. Not surprising: Nebelhorn is late this year (9/29-10/2) and the Vienna Cup (the Olympic qualifying event) is 10/12-16.
Too bad for Nick and Alissa.
From my view last Nats, MillerBrubaker may just be the best thing to hit American Pairs.

And thanks for the Link, Sylvia. I noticed Silverstein and O'Mearer are on for Skate America. Bebe in Neblehorn; Emilie in Vienna and Cizney got the coveted Finlandia.

Amber Corwin and Angela Nikodinov have been relegated to Team C. I sure hope both of them can work their way up to at least Team B next season by finishing strongly at Nationals.
Good luck to you, ladies!
