    I guess we'll see. The Nats judges do love her a LOT at least if prior years are any indication. But she does have to go clean.

    Personally I don't see how Ashley should have been scored higher than Caroline. I would have Agnes, Alissa, Caroline then Ashley.

    To be fair, Ashley did 3F-2T vs Alissa's 3Z-2T.

    ps: I too feel like taking a bathroom break b/c I hate to see a favorite of mine show up unprepared, out of shape, et al. :(

    To be honest I don't think the judges are quiiite that calculating if only in that I don't think it would be possible in the time they have to do the math necessary to place one higher or not (especially by such a small margin) unless you were being obvious about it i.e. giving one all +3GOE and the other +1.

    I could be wrong though. I'm not a judge.

    ETA: This was to be in response to ArtandSport. Sorry!

    Looks like Brian Orser isn't here. Guess he's at Europeans.

    Alissa did her best SP of the season except for that 1A, IMO. As for Agnes, you have to see how securely she skated. The smoothness and rideout of the jumps was beautiful, definitely the best of the competition. She's a big girl and sometimes that works against her since she's not a princess type, but the jumps are big too and that's cool. Just a lay opinion here.

    Nice jobs by Ashley and Caroline!

    Alissa rightfully gets rep points b/c she's the only 2-time National Champ here, as well GPF Champion, et al. If she skates clean she's got a chance at a World Medal.

    So excited to see Agnes in first, bout time! She has huge jumps, hope she wins the whole thing and goes to Senior Worlds. I'm sad about Mirai but she just isn't the same skater, maybe she will work harder for next year?

    How high do you need to finish to have a bye for next year? Is it top 5?

    Seems like this may turn into a pretty bad season for Mirai. Will she even make the final flight? :(

    He is. He's there with Javier Fernandez.

    I think there's some truth to the statement that Mirai doesn't seem to be enjoying herself. I think she should take a few months to really and truly decide what she wants and how she can best get there.
