    She seems to have a knack for early sp draws. Hopefully she can get out there and just bust out a great sp and set the standard high. It sounds like she's hitting clean triple/triples consistently in practice and with her new mentality hopefully she can translate that into a great routine.

    The other one I find particularly interesting is Agnes skating last right after Ashley. If Ashley skates the way everyone is anticipating I think it will be really interesting to see Agnes' mindset. It will certainly be a good test to see how competitive she can be.

    It also looks like Gracie and Christina will be in the same warm-up group. I don't necessarily see that bothering either of them but they both are definitely on contention for that second world spot.

    No, with 21 skaters the groups would be 5-5-5-6, so Gao will be in the final warmup group.

    tough draw for Nagasu being early and in the same group as Cesario who has mature presentation but easier elements, Wang who can hit a big point-scorer 3+3, and Miller who has a lot of it factor (although Nagasu can do all of that when she's on). Czsiny put up a SP score 2 years ago that stood from the 2nd spot and there's less pressure that early because you have to go for everything you plan, no playing it safe.
    Pretty good draw for Gold in that she's going to look like the class of the field in that warm up group from both a TES and PCS aspect (sorry, Zhang fans, it's true)
    Great draw for Wagner - she'll know what she has to do and she's an awesome strategist. Zawadski I worry about if Wagner's electric going last (and right after her)

    And doesn't Agnes hate going last?

    What's interesting here is that none of the skaters skated in a senior nationals before 2008. It's all newbies here.

    True, but Wagner is the oldest skater here....and she's 21.

    The US has no wiley veterans.

    Sorry, you are mistaken, Reginald.

    Joelle Forte was born in 1986.

    Okay, my mistake.

    It is interesting that this is only her 3rd senior nationals.
