So happy for Caroline! And everyone!
Personally I don't see how Ashley should have been scored higher than Caroline. I would have Agnes, Alissa, Caroline then Ashley.
Rachael will be first up after the warm up.
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.
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?
