    Greater Chicagoland Fall Invitational (09/09-09/11)

    Junior Ladies at GCFI this past weekend was amazing! The top two ladies have a great chance to make it all the way through to Nationals and even potentially podium if they skate to their potential. Gracie Gold had her best outing of her LP this past weekend and her total score was 160+ . Her long program was littered with positive GOEs throughout from the judges, I didn't see one negative on her score sheet. She opened the program with 3Lz+3T and followed with 2A+3T. Lexi Verhulst was a very strong second at 135+ total score.

    For those that will get to see it, Upper Great Lakes will be great and likely Midwestern Sectional will have a skater or two who deserves to be at Nationals who will end up 5th or 6th.

    Great to hear about Gracie and Lexis skating well this past weekend -- I was waiting for the results from this competition to be published online so thanks a lot for the news!

    Gold's previous combined total high Junior score in a summer competition is from Skate Detroit in late July was 155.89 (56.58 in SP, 99.31 in FS), and she has scored over 99+ in a FS at least 5 times(!) prior Chicagoland, while Verhulst's is 133.68 from Skate Milwaukee in early July.

    BTW, Gracie Gold's Skate Detroit videos are online:

    Yes, our club is a bit behind in posting results as we are changing hosting sites and webmasters. I saw the results sheet because I was working registration this weekend on Sunday, but I didn't think to keep it.
