I was just wondering if there was a thread for this. I hope the best for Team Raf at nationals this year. Nathan and Mariah are my favorites among the US skaters at the moment.

I have a feeling some Team Raf skaters will surprise us next season (provided there is one).

Specifically, Stephen Gogolev and Andrew Torgashev :) We'll see!

I'm sad to learn that Torgashev isn't competing in USNats this season. Hope he's doing well in both life and training. I'm also hoping that he gets a team envelope.
