Junior GP Slection?
All this talk of the seniors, but is there any news on the junior GP selection.
(I realise there is a junior GP folder but i suspect at this pre-season stage more people will look here before the JGP folder).
Still too early for USFS to release specific assignments, but here's the Initial US Athletes for 2009 JGP series:
Cassie Andrews/Nicholas Anderson
Kylie Duarte/Colin Grafton
Meredith Pipkin/Brett Dunie-Neustadt
Brittney Simpson/Nathan Miller
Tori Vollmer/Zach Sidhu
Isabella Cannuscio/Ian Lorello
Piper Gilles/Zach Donohue
Charlotte Lichtman/Dean Copely
Maia Shibutani/Alex Shibutani
Rachel Tibbetts/Collin Brubaker
There are still a few spots open, so we'll probably see some additions to this list after the summer monitoring competitions (ie Liberty, Indy Challenge & Lake Placid Dance Championships).
Thanks, Tammi! I've posted the link to the USFS press release that's now been published online and added the U.S. skaters' placements (where applicable) from the December 2008 JGP Final, 2009 U.S. Nationals and Junior Worlds in this thread in the 2009 JGP forum: http://www.goldenskate.com/forum/showthread.php?t=28071
