top 3 dance teams a fingernail behind or ahead with Can a whole finger. Should be an exciting OD
Time Schedule interesting with the boys on last day.
On the Ice
Congrats to Terra & Ben!
Moving up the testing structure
Wow the top 3 really are quite close. I was wondering, though, didn't Terra Findlay once skate for Canada with John Mattatal (sp?)? Or am I confusing her with someone else?
No confusion. She did skate pairs with him but she became too tall and had jump problems so she switched to dance. Always was an elegant skater though.

Wow. It's great for a new team to win the CD! I remember Tarra and John Mattattal skating in pairs at Jr. worlds in 2004. I didn't know she has switched to dance. BTW, how old is she? If she skated with Dogherty in Sr's, then she must be on the higher end of the age limit for juniors. On a different note, I'm very pleased for Ralph & Hill. They're so dynamic, and the CD's are usually their weakness, so I'm really hoping for them to medal. One point is not an insurmountable gap for them to overcome.
BTW, I know this is off-topic, but does anyone know anything about Rylie McCulloch-Casarsa? She's the second ladies entry for Canada. According to her bio, she's only thirteen or fourteen (born in '94). To be honest, I've never heard of her. Does anyone know how strong of a skater she is?
(Edit: I just found her name on the Skate Canada website. Apparently, she was 6th in Novice at Nationals last season. She must have been majorly impressive at one of the summer competitions to get an assignment like this.)
