    2014-15 Caroline Zhang

    Does anyone know if Caroline Zhang is competing this year? Her name was on a summer list for a competition but she withdrew. If she is not competing, is she still skating, coaching or going to school? Any information
    would be appreciated. I do believe she will not win and even place in the top three but some still compete for competition sake after all there is usually between 18 and 21 ladies at nationals and only 4 are on a podium

    Regionals are coming up next month. Check to see if she is scheduled to compete. She got a bye last year because she got a host pick to Skate America, but not this year. If she doesn't do Regionals, she isn't competing at all this year.

    I believe the entry deadline for the Pacific regions is late September, so too soon to know if Caroline will be on the list.

    Caroline Zhang did compete at Golden West at the end of August. She placed third (behind Karen Chan and Riona Kato) in both the SP and FS.

    Grant Hochstein tweets off-ice photos of himself with CZ fairly often -- of whatever fun stuff they happen to be doing together.

    I believe USFS's deadline for entry into any of the 9 Regionals for Singles events was Sept 1. Dance and Pairs also have a Sept 1 deadline, but they advance directly to Sectionals held in November.

    Confusing! Perhaps that is for non-qualifying. Or maybe just for Practice Ice. I have no idea. The USFS entry itself specifies Sept 1, (see p. 4) http://www.usfsa.org/content/events/...nouncement.pdf

    ETA: Mystery solved! It appears to be for Practice Ice. The following is on the LOC's website:.

    PRACTICE ICE PURCHASE IS NOW OPEN THROUGH STEPTEMBER 21 @ 11:59PM.

    Thanks for clearing up my confusion, just wondering. SO NOW THAT SEPTEMBER 1 HAS PASSED, is Caroline listed to compete? I have given up on trying to find the lists.

    ^Oh wow well good for her! That's much stronger than she was doing last year. I hope there's a video eventually.

    I just looked at the protocols for the SP and Caroline did a 3loop as her solo jump, 3flip/2toe as her combination, 2A with positive GOEs. Her steps and spins were level 4, except her layback spin was a level 3. I think this is really a good beginning and wish her the best! Top 4 finishers at Regionals will go on to Sectionals.

    Oh wow, that is a really good score for her given the past few years!!

    Glad to hear this. While I don't think she'll ever be the skater many of us hoped she'd be, I do wish her well and am glad she's still competing if that makes her happy.
