North American Series for U.S. & Canadian Novice level skaters at 2018 Skate Milwaukee, July 11-12

Posted by unseenskaters on July 10, 2018

Skate Canada’s press release: https://skatecanada.ca/2018/07/canadian-novice-figure-skaters-in-wisconsin-for-skate-milwaukee/

The event is the first in a series of three competitions on the 2018 North American Series. The novice-level series was developed by U.S. Figure Skating and Skate Canada’s Athlete Development and High-Performance Development Departments to provide international development competition opportunities for athletes that competed at the sectional or national level, to simulate an international competition, and compete against top athletes from both the U.S. and Canada.

The 2018 North American Series will be comprised of three events: Skate Milwaukee in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, from July 11-15, 2018, Lake Placid Ice Dance Competition in Lake Placid, New York, from July 24-27, 2018 and the Skate Ontario Summer Skate in Toronto (North York), Ontario, from August 16-19, 2018.

[N] = Novice level placement at 2018 U.S. or CAN Nationals;
[Int] = Intermediate level placement at 2018 U.S. Nationals;
U.S. Intermediate is equivalent to CAN Pre-Novice;
[PN] = Pre-Novice placement at Skate Canada Challenge in December 2017.

Novice Men SP recap by Elvin Walker for IceNetwork

Despite some small bobbles and a timing deduction, Nicholas Hsieh, a 15-year-old from West Chester, Pennsylvania, set the novice men’s pace with 56.75 points.
“I feel like I had to fight to perform well,” Hsieh admitted after the competition. “But I am happy that I was able to skate decently.”
Performing to Disturbed’s haunting version of “The Sound of Silence,” the leader opened an unsteady triple lutz that was intended to be his combination. Thinking quickly on his feet, Hsieh was able to save the program by tacking a double toe loop onto a planned triple toe loop.
“My lutz wasn’t very good, but I am happy I fought for it,” he explained. “I did not land a single one in the warm-up, but I was confident even if the landing was a bit off.”
His coach, Viktor Pfeifer, credits Hsieh’s commitment to training for his strong performance.
“He is very special with skating skills and artistry, but he is the kind of person who needs repetition in order to gain consistency,” Pfeifer explained. “I am very proud of him. Even if his jumps weren’t perfect in the air, he was still able to do his job.”
In second place is Goku Endo, who is within striking distance of the leader after earning 54.11 points.
“It felt really fun,” Endo said of his performance. “I don’t have the hard jumps, but I think that I did OK for what I can do.”
The 14-year-old opened with a triple toe loop-double toe loop combination, and opted for a solo triple salchow in his The Business of Love program. Despite earning positive Grades of Execution on all six of his elements, Endo was disappointed with his levels.
“My last spin and my footwork were level 3,” he pointed out. “I think that I must have been short of rotation on one of my positions in the spin, and I must have missed a cluster or a body (feature) in the footwork.”
In finishing third, Max Lake skated a ghostly performance to Gary Moore’s “The Messiah Will Come Again” while feeling under the weather.
“I’ve had a cold for about a week, and it’s just not going away,” he lamented. “I’m surprised that it went so well.”
The 15-year-old opened with a triple toe loop-triple toe loop, which helped him to the second-highest technical score of the day.
“I had a few trips into some of the elements, and my jump landings weren’t so good,” he said. “But I was able to overcome adversity to skate a pretty clean program, and I am happy with that.”
A native of Carlsbad, California, Lake finished with 52.66 points.

Goku Endo, who hails from Harbor City, California, captured the novice men’s title by the slimmest of margins, as he held off Lake by a mere 0.37 points.
“It feels really good,” he said of the win. “It wasn’t my best performance, but I am happy with the result.”
Skating to “El Tango de Roxanne” from Moulin Rouge!, Endo started strong, executing a triple toe loop-double toe loop combination. He did suffer two major errors that nearly cost him the title, though: a pop on his planned triple loop and a fall on a triple toe.
“I popped the loop and fell on a triple toe. I was probably thinking too much on my loop approach, and then I think I hesitated on the toe loop and lost too much speed,” Endo said.
Angela Nikodinov, who coaches Endo, believes the 14-year-old lost his focus after the mishap on the loop, and from that moment on, the program seemed to get away from him.
“Of course, I am ecstatic that he is the novice men’s national champion, but that was not his best,” Nikodinov admitted. “He is working hard on improving his consistency, and this is uncharacteristic of what he does at home.”
Still, Endo was especially pleased with the spins in his program.
“They were all Level 4, so that is an improvement over the short program,” he noted. “My coaches kept telling me in the warm-up to check my positions, so that really helped me.”
Endo finished second in both phases of the competition, but his total score of 156.14 points was enough to propel him to the top of the podium.
Lake, who sat third after the short program, landed six triple jumps — including a gorgeous axel — and moved up to second place overall. His “Cello Conterto in E” program was performed with maturity and a quiet confidence.
“It feels great,” the silver medalist said. “It’s the best that I have ever done at nationals.”
Lake might have won the title had it not been for a fluke fall on a spin, an error that cost him a 0.50-point deduction.
“I’m happy that I was able to do the axel, but my spins didn’t help me at all today,” Lake said. “Overall, I am happy with my jumps and with my performance.”
He finished with 155.77 points overall.
Overnight leader Nicholas Hsieh struggled during his Muse routine, but his performance was still worthy of the bronze medal.
“I’m a little disappointed, and I know that I could have done better,” Hsieh said. “I am happy that I got a medal, and that I fought through the program.”
The 15-year-old fell three times and was credited with just two clean triple jumps in what proved to be the sixth-best free skate of the competition.
“I guess it just wasn’t my day today,” said Hsieh, who ended with an event total of 151.64 points. “I fell apart a bit in the second half after I fell on my axel. My spins weren’t very good, either.”
Lucas Altieri completed his visit to San Jose in fourth place with 144.63 points.

EVENT RECAPS & PHOTOS:
Novice Ladies SP recap by Elvin Walker for IceNetwork

In her U.S. championships debut, 15 year-old Beverly Zhu stole away with the lead, earning 54.91 points with a delicate program to Yiruma and Henry Lau’s River Flows in You.
“It feels really good,” the Calabasas, California, resident said after the competition. “I did everything that I could today, and I am pretty surprised with the result.
Zhu opened with a strong triple flip-double toe loop combination and also landed her triple loop with ease. However, it was her three level 4 elements and positive Grades of Execution across the board that really separated Zhu from the pack.
“I knew that some of the other girls had harder jumps, but I knew that I could make that up because of my levels,” she explained.
Zhu’s performance was packed with intricate transitions and conveyed a softness that suits her long limbs.
“I try to make myself calm when I perform,” she pointed out. “I think that when I am calm, the audience can relax and enjoy the performance.”
Finishing in second place was Christina Lin from Murray, Utah. The 13 year-old struggled with her jump landings, turning out of the first half of a triple lutz-double toe loop combination and again on her solo triple loop.
“There are some definite improvements that can be made,” she said. “Obviously, the jump landings were shaky, but I feel like my performance level was there even if it wasn’t full out.”
Despite the errors, Lin performed with passion and crispness in her “Pa’ Bailar” program, and she will take 48.29 points into Wednesday’s free skate.
Violeta Ushakova finished third with 46.76 points. The 13-year-old from Clifton Park, New York, opened with an unsteady triple loop but recovered to perform the rest of her tango program cleanly.
“It could have gone better,” Ushakova said. “It was a good experience, but I missed my loop, so I am really disappointed.”
Like Lin, Ushakova also earned high program component scores with her bold and brassy choreography.
“This was much better than last year,” Ushakova said, referring to her sixth-place finish in intermediate. “I’m just trying to stay calm and focused for the free skate.”

Before she arrived in San Jose, Beverly Zhu was doubtful about her chances of making the novice ladies podium. On Wednesday, however, the high school sophomore stole away with the top prize, besting the rest of the field by more than 35 points. Her competition total of 167.69 set a new U.S. championships record for a novice lady.
“This is unbelievable,” she said with a dazed look on her face. “I never thought that I would medal. I just wanted to do what I can do in practice, and today I was able to put it out there.”
The champion landed six triple jumps, including an opening triple flip-triple toe loop combination, in her Miss Saigon free skate.
Zhu seemed nonplussed by her triple-triple accomplishment.
“I had all of my triples consistent except for the lutz,” she explained. “So, we decided to go for a triple-triple. It took some practice, but it eventually came. I am happy that I was able to do it today.”
Moving up from sixth place after the short program to capture the silver medal, Emilea Zingas was over the moon with her free skate performance.
“I feel amazing,” she said. “I wanted to skate with no regrets because this was the last time I got to perform this program. I am so excited to be on the podium.”
Performing to the skating staple “Malagueña,” Zingas woke up the crowd with her snappy choreography and fiery facial expressions. She also threw in some strong technical content, including an opening triple lutz-double toe loop combination. Zingas had just one notable mistake — a fall on her triple salchow in the middle of the program.
“The components are a bit tricky, but I feel great about the way that I performed today,” she admitted. “The triple sal is a jump that I do all the time, so that was a bit frustrating, but I am overall very happy with how things went.”
Zingas earned 89.25 points in the free skate and a competition total of 132.68.
Sixth in the competition last year, Violeta Ushakova finished with the bronze medal, even though she not happy with the way she skated.
“That was not my best at all,” she lamented. “I’m not going to lie. I was a bit nervous, but I tried to stay calm and perform well.”
Ushakova landed three triple jumps in her Samson & Delilah program, for which she earned 84.76 points, but she was plagued by small errors throughout. Still, with a competition total of 131.52, the bronze medalist was happy with her result.
“It’s amazing,” she said. “This is my second time here, so placing third is really exciting.”
Calista Choi had the second-best free skate of the day en route to a fourth-place finish. She overcame a 10th-place showing in the short to finish with 131.20 points.
