Not as good as yesterday, but still one of her stronger skates since her comeback. Should be enough to get her to Nationals, I think?
She was holding the last Nationals spot with 163.62 prior to this. We have to wait for the Spokane comp to finish before we are 100% sure. But I think it looks good. @ice coverage do you agree?

I thought I read something about top 2 from each series qualify. Did I make that up? Gracie is going to win this comp. :)

We just don’t know how Spokane will be. That’s the only fly in the ointment.

Ok so what do we call her now?! (Other than Queen). Example when they had Sectionals there was an Eastern Sectionals Champion.

I believe Gracie is in. She bumped Jill Heiner out of second place for the Eastern Section.

Well ... IMO, it is not a done deal for second place for Eastern section for Gracie in the final standings -- because Hanna Harrell is listed as an entry for Spokane.
Representing SCOB, Hanna scored 171.75 in Henderson, and it is not unthinkable to me that she could overtake Gracie.
Spokane SP is tonight, and Spokane FS is tomorrow night.

That said, I do believe that it is looking extremely likely that Gracie will qualify for Nats, but perhaps as one of the "next three in the nation."

Even if(?) Hanna were to place second in Eastern, I think chances are low that multiple other women in Spokane would get scores sufficient to end up bumping Gracie out of "next three in the nation."

Thank you for keeping up with all this for us. It is so confusing to me. I suppose if they keep this format I’ll figure it out at some point.
