With her jumping ability the sky is the limit for Gracie. My advice to her would be stay focused, land the jumps and most importantly enjoy the Olympic season. It might not all come together this year, but have fun! (And stop worrying about the dresses).

It should be exciting for the Senior's Midwestern and Pacific Sectionals.
Sectionals is the most exciting round of qualifying for worlds/Olympics for the same reason the 2nd round is the most exciting time of March Madness.
You get to see skaters that have already won/or are really good compete against each other and one of them has to lose.
But you still have a lot of skating involved (unlike Nationals).
It's like have hundreds of heavyweight match ups on a particular weekend.
Only 4 of these skaters can make it through for each sectional. Thoughts?

Rachael will have her hands full trying to get out of Sectionals. She's lucky that Zhang has fallen so far down so that may save her. I see Wang, Lam and perhaps even Keiser beating her. Some very good skaters might get left out going to Nationals from the Midwestern Sectionals.
