    Many thanks for the reports, Rosaleen!

    Marcoux/Buntin have the best distribution of elements, at least on paper:

    SBS 3T's
    Lift
    Spiral Seq
    SBS Spins
    2Tw
    Pairs Spin
    Throw 3R
    BIDS

    Imagine not starting the program with some combination of SBS 3's, 3Throw, 2Twist

    In the lift, he seemed to have some issues with his footwork. As a result, the lift was two handed throughout. In practice, after the mount, he switches to just one hand. It was apparent that they didn't feel secure and keep it two handed. That definitely impacted their technical marks. I expect this program to look much cleaner later in the season. They had a couple of really nice runthroughs in practice that were sharper and cleaner.
