Finally did some catching up. I never used to follow the JGP, but it's of more interest to me now with more info available on line, and of course looking forward to seeing these folks live at US Nationals. With all the qualifying events completed, here is a summary of the USA standings:
For those who also haven't followed JGP previously, 8 singles/teams qualify for finals in each category. 3 singles/teams are designated as alternates. As a legend for the summary "QX" indicates the qualifying placement. The number(s) after the names indicates the age of the people where an ISU profile was available.
Ladies - 89 ladies competed in JGP events.
Q7 Christine Zukowski 16
1st Alt Katy Taylor 16
Men - 102 Men competed in JGP events

Good luck to team USA in the finals which are in the Czeck Republic over Thanksgiving weekend. That info is for anyone else like me who has not typically followed JGP. WOW on the young USA pairs! Maybe there is hope after all if these kids can stay together long enough.
