She probably got dinged on the air position. Her 2A has a lot of great qualities, but she is pretty loose in the air and has a leg wrap.
well for someone who does all triples and ultra si, she is going to have a looser air position in an easier jump. it's like questioning why someone doesn't have tight air position on a double flip vs a triple or quad flip. you don't need the tight rotation and air position to get it around.

anyway, i think she should have been rewarded higher GOEs her 2nd junior season on her 2A. to me she has a bigger and floatier jump than her first junior season, even as good as it was then.
