    Westrn Challenge - Novice Men

    Short Program

    Skaters are shown in the order they skated. Points are at the end of the notes. Placements are my calculation -- not from the official sheets (which aren't out yet) I'm really bad a remembering to count spin revolutions and so a spin that I said was good might have been short revs without me noting it.
