    News Aaron and Settlage make the jump to Seniors

    USA’s Madeline Aaron and Max Settlage have had little time for pause since the 2014 World Junior Figure Skating Championships, where they placed a respectable fifth in their first time at the event. The skaters took a week off in Arizona immediately after, but have been training ever since. More...

    Happy birthday to Max S! You know, if any TPTB is listening, that Skate America TBD might make for a lovely birthday present. And you don't even need wrapping paper!

    When I saw them at Nationals this year I thought they were a very interesting pair. Wouldn't it be loverly if they stayed together long enough to make a difference in US Pairs!

    A new article about Aaron/Settlage, "Paving their own way," is in the August/September issue of Skating magazine (pp. 28-29).

    The link to the entire issue is in this tweet:

    One of the best parts is Settlage's self-illustration of the partners on ice.

    News

    Today Nebelhorn was added to Aaron/Settlage's international plate ... joining SLC and Skate Canada. (Thx to sk8ingcoach for posting the assignments in the Nebelhorn thread.)

    ETA, serendipitous that Max Aaron will be a teammate for their first senior international as well as their first senior GP.

    BTW, regarding Settlage's artwork: USFS also tweeted the above-mentioned illustration of Maddie and himself.

    News

    Cross-posting from the Colorado Champs thread:

    Wow ... Aaron/Settlage WON () the Colorado Championships, according to Sarah Brannen's comments in today's IN article. Congratulations to Maddie and Max!

    Madeline Aaron and Max Settlage started the season with a bang, winning the Colorado Championships by 20 points. This elegant young team has already been together for four years, and they are just what the U.S. pairs program needs.

    [Scimeca/Knierim also competed -- as did Budd/Blackmer.]

    I can't imagine A/S beat alexa and chris. Did they only do one segment?

    Scimeca/Knierim competed in both the SP and FS.

    All three pairs skated both programs. (I am about to edit my post above accordingly.)

    I don't see the "by 20 points" in the article - it must have been an error and removed.

    ETA that the official results have been published for the Colorado Championships that took place in early August - I've posted the link in the thread for the competition.

    The combined (SP+FS) scores for the 3 Senior pairs at the Colorado Championships club competition are:
    Alexa Scimeca/Chris Knierim 160.98 (58.23 SP, 102.75 FS)
    Madeline Aaron/Max Settlage 156.85 (50.43 SP, 106.42 FS)
    Kaitlin Budd/Matthew Blackmer (new) 125.22 (43.43 SP, 81.79 FS)

    Thx to Sylvia for noticing that the IN article was revised after I posted the quote above. (And for posting the CC results links in the competition thread.)

    The revised comments from Sarah Brannen:

    Madeline Aaron and Max Settlage started the season well, winning the free skate at the Colorado Championships. This elegant, young team has already been together for four years, and they are just what the U.S. pairs program needs.

    In any case, they still are Brannen's choice as "breakout" stars among U.S. pairs.

    And they still have my congratulations for winning the FS -- by 3.67 over S/K.
