    Alex Johnson turned 19 last month and so he has aged out of ISU Junior events. He is likely on the Senior GP alternate list (he was #32 on the ISU's Season Best scores list and the highest man on that list currently without a GP assignment) and hopefully will be considered by USFS for a Senior 'B' event this fall.

    What's happening with Austin Wagner (Novice last year) who I believe has all the potential of being very special in the future?

    I just noticed that Austin is entered in the upcoming Chesapeake Open competition in the Novice mens division.

    Hey Pete - I'm assuming by Entries at JGP United States means Lake Placid.

    The field in LP will probably be weak compared to other JGPs, but I'm not sure if it's the best idea to send what's probably 3 of the top 4 US dance teams to the same event.

    I was wondering that, too. Last year I'm pretty sure they didn't cover the JGP. :frown2: I hope they do this season.

    I haven't seen anything yet and although they typically don't cover JGP's, in 2007, Ice Network did provide live coverage during the Lake Placid JGP. I checked back and the press release for that event came out in late August, so there's still hope.

    Sorry for not noticing your query earlier Joe.... Yes, those are the listed entries for JGP Lake Placid.

    Laney Diggs withdrew on August 20 and was replaced by Christina Gao
    Andrews/Anderson also withdrew on the 20th but there is no replacement yet.
    maybe USFS is waiting to see how well Carman and Reiss are at the Golden West.
