The sieve is Regionals, Sectionals, Nationals. There is no bye to Regionals - it's the starting point.Originally posted by Sylvia
Last season, Weir showed up at the Liberty summer (monitoring) competition in July 2003 and proved was ready to compete in 2003-04. As a result, he was assigned to Finlandia Trophy (after Ryan Bradley withdrew) and received a bye through North Atlantic Regionals in October. He almost won Finlandia (very close split decision), then won Eastern Sectionals to qualify for 2004 Nationals, and started peaking after that.
