    Such a typical Igor program, lol, so generic, I had trouble watching to the end, even though they skated it beautifully!

    I thought the FD did a great job of showcasing Elliana and Alex's strengths. They certainly had no trouble holding my attention.

    I thought it was lovely. She is beautiful, flexible and legs that just go on forever and he complements her beautifully. I thought the first lift was fantastic. Some people might be sorry they let them get a head start at seniors.

    I have a good feeling about this team. I suspect they may surprise a lot of people as seniors. They never really seemed suited to the junior level.

    Such a smooth transition to the senior level, a solid international season culminating in the pewter at nationals. They always seemed a little out of place in juniors but they seem very well suited to seniors. I hope they really build on this for next season, but they've shown great promise. I'm looking forward to how they'll grow!
