Aside from my comments regarding pairs and ladies, I'm really happy with the rest of the selections. As I said, thrilled with the decision to send P/I to 4CC, especially since they finished so close to R/H. Kudos to SC for not letting them fall even further behind by robbing them of valuable international exposure. I'm glad Najarro will be going as well.

As for junior worlds, the team is just perfect. The only thing that surprised me was the decision to send the novice pairs champs and not the 2nd or 3rd place junior teams. It will be interesting to see how Bell/Sylvester fare when their first junior competition ever will be junior worlds.
