Thanks for reminding me, I guess my thought their debut would be Sectionals, but regardless your right their was money and qualify for nationals.
And ... the opportunity to meet the minimum TES requirement for Nats for seniors is another benefit of the ISP Points Challenge.
On Sep 24, the minimum TES requirement for 2021 Nats was the subject of a new technical notification on the USFS members-only site.
(I have not seen the new TN on the public website yet?)
For now, suffice it to say that except for ice dance, the minimums have been markedly lowered for 2021 Nats.
A special rule for this season is that skaters with byes to 2021 Nats (from placement at 2020 Nats or 2020 ISP Points Challenge) do not need to earn the minimum TES in the same season.
... Meno/Sand were recognized with the PSA coach of the year award recently for their work with C/J and the Knierims.
Side note that Christine Fowler-Binder also was a recipient of the PSA award as part of the coaching team.
