    Angel Sarikova is one to watch. I have watched her since she as a preliminary. She had a rough SP and was in 17 but rallied to 7th overall in the Southwestern Intermediate Ladies. She had great presence on the ice and a 2 axel/2 toe/2 loop.

    Then you missed UGLs - Barbie Long landed 2A+2T+2Lo, 3S, 2A, 2Lz+2Lo, 2Lz, 2F+2T and had all level 3s and 4s on everything else in her LP to a score of 63. Everything is of very high quality (lots of +GOES) and this kid has no limits!

    Maybe somebody can answer this one. Why do so many skaters kill in the qualifiying and do well in the short and then fall apart in the freeskate?

    Because they put too much pressure on themselves. I watched a Senior Lady do it at UGL this past Monday. She had a large cushion after SP to make the top 4 and move on, but she came out to skate her program looking very nervous (she's been 5th like 6 times over the years from Intermediate on up) and just had a terrible skate for her. She made Sectionals, but her long was not good.

    Some never figure out how to compete. It's not just one program, it's the entire event.
