    Loboda - Drozd are good (not excellent, but really good) Junior couple.

    They skated together only at 2012/2013 Season, so it is normal that they have progress.

    I really liked Bent/MacKeen!! McNamara/Carpenter's program was nice but... was it a quickstep? I didn't really understand its theme...

    Their costumes were also Very classy and elegant look, very polished skaters. I saw them live in 2011 at a JGP were they won their first medal (a bronze) and even then their quality was showing in spades. I can't wait to see their FD

    McNamara and Carpenter will have been together for 7 years this December.

    And she's not even 15 yet.

    Wow.

    Oh, I've been a fan of them since I randomly found their Doll FD on Youtube way back in the 2008-2009 season (wow I didn't realize it was that far back until looking at their website). The video isn't there anymore (or was made private) but it was adorable and pretty amazing for such young dancers. All the WISA teams are pretty darn talented, but I could see them in the Olympics one day if they stick with it (since Lorraine will be 18, turning 19, by the time 2018 comes around, and Quinn will be 21, turning 22). Could see them winning/medaling, but no one will know since it's over 4 years away and things happen.

    It's funny to think they're in their FOURTH year of Nationals competition at the junior level this year.

    Looking at the protocols, the PCS were for Bent/MacKeen and McNamara/Carpenter were essentially the same (only differed by 0.41 in favor of M/C). The only real difference maker was the first sequence for M/C getting called at 1 while it was at 4 for B/M. That's a BV difference of 4 points.

    SHowing that levels really do matter seriously sometimes.
