1:37 pm. So the top two who finish today (born in 2008 and 2009) will earn automatic spots on the junior worlds team – right now that’s Rivera and Hang, which frankly would be an incredible two thirds of a team.

Isabella Anzola FX 12.600
1:17 pm. Audrey Snyder BB: Love her opening sequence. Full turn, strong bhs loso, just little form things. Doing really nice work with her leaps. Double tuck with her chest down and a small step forward. 13.100 (4.9, 8.200)
Kieryn Finnell BB 13.650 (5.7, 7.950)!!!!
1:16 pm. Jayla Hang UB: Stalder to Ricna, toe full into a lovely Pak, maybe TOO big, van Leeuwen had a weird hip twist moment, double layout with a fabulous landing. 13.700 (5.3, 8.400)!
1:14 pm. Carly Weinberg UB: I wasn’t typing for this, had some big form breaks throughout, she’s not really known for doing big things on bars, but a hit for her is big regardless of how it looks, and she did just that! 11.300
Hezly Rivera VT: Yurchenko double, loses some leg form in the second twist, and lands with her chest a bit down with a step back. 13.650
1:13 pm. Nicole Desmond FX: Double layout full-out, a bit weak in terms of the form and she lands pretty short. Follows it up with a double layout, again with some loose form. Leap series went well. Front tuck through to double tuck with a step. Switch full. 12.700 (5.4, 7.300)

Harlow Buddendeck BB 10.950
1:09 pm. Simone Rose UB: Stalder to Ray, nice! Clear hip to blind change to Ezhova, leg form, toe-on to shoot, catches really close and has to muscle it, blind change finishes really late, and a double layout with some leg form and a hop. 12.200
1:07 pm. Claire Pease VT: Yurchenko full, superb landing, tiniest step. 13.250
Tatum Drusch VT: Yurchenko full, twists a bit late and has to whip it around, some leg and hip form, but she lands well. 12.800
1:05 pm. Camie Westerman UB: Toe full, doesn’t make it around, has to regroup at the halfway point, opts to not try it again when she rights herself, goes right into the Maloney series. Tkachev between the bars, hard fall. Back on for a toe shoot, ooh, front toe half, love that, and a double pike with a step. 9.850
Jazmyn Jimenez VT 13.200
Sage Bradford VT 13.050
1:03 pm. Touch for rotation three is underway. No big surprises so far in the standings, but happy that both Finnell and Hardie are doing what they’re capable of so far! Finnell is lovely on beam and floor so hope she gets big hits on both.

7. Carly Weinberg 25.550
8. Simone Rose 25.500
12:54 pm. Zoey Molomo BB: Switch leap mount. Sissone to split jump, little bobble. Side aerial to layout stepout, lands it on her toes and has to hang on but she does! Gets a little sketchy in the wolf turn, but again fights through. Switch leap, standing back tuck, front aerial, and a big double tuck with a small hop.
12:53 pm. I’m back momentarily…some notable scores in the meantime!
Jayla Hang VT: Yurchenko double. 13.800!
Kieryn Finnell UB 12.700
Audrey Snyder UB 11.300
Gabrielle Hardie BB 12.800
12:43 pm. Okay, I’m very sorry, but I have to run out for a bit unexpectedly and am going to miss part of this meet – hopefully I can jump back in soon!
12:42 pm. Charleigh Bullock UB: I wasn’t typing at the beginning but nothing missed, full-in with a good landing.
12:40 pm. Jazmyn Jimenez FX: Tucked full-in, solid. Clean split jump full. Double pike lands forward and when she pulls back, she ends up falling backwards and sitting.
Ella Kate Parker VT: Does a Yurchenko layout and then tries a Yurchenko full but it lands a bit rough, finishes short, and she limps off. 11.950
12:39 pm. Simone Rose VT: Comes off the table a bit low, lands with her chest slightly forward and she’s a bit piked down. 12.700
12:38 pm. Tyler Turner UB: I missed her release but saw she caught, got the Pak and van Leeuwen, a little hesitant in the blind full, and a double layout with a small hop back. 12.200 (4.8, 7.400)
Camie Westerman VT 12.800
12:37 pm. Hezly Rivera FX: Double layout, excellent and stuck!!! Full-in with a small hop back. Switch to switch full. Triple wolf turn, slow and controlled. Front tuck through to double tuck, small hop back. Switch ring. Finishes with a 2.5. WOW WOW WOW. 13.450 (5.6, 7.850)
12:36 pm. Izzy Stassi VT: Yurchenko full, good landing, really absorbs the mat. Slight knee form but overall very nice. 12.850
12:29 pm. Touch for the second rotation now. Danzy was excellent on vault but the rest of her events aren’t really close to what she can do there, so I anticipate her shifting down in the rankings a bit. Glad to see Hardie start off on a high note – she’s been kind of hit or miss I think, but she has the potential to be right up in the mix with a good day.
12:28 pm. Rotation 1 Standings
1. Hezly Rivera 13.800
– Lailah Danzy 13.800
3. Kieryn Finnell 13.350
4. Gabrielle Hardie 13.250
5. Zoey Molomo 13.200
6. Claire Pease 13.150
7. Audrey Snyder 13.100
8. Tyler Turner 13.000
12:26 pm. Gabriella Pierson BB: Front aerial, bigger wobble on a skill after but I missed what it was, hit the jump series, full turn, double full dismount, some leg form.
12:24 pm. Tatum Drusch BB: Switch to sissone. Front aerial with a wobble and step forward. Switch half is a bit shy of 180. Some knees on the bhs loso. Cross split jump half, little wobble. Side aerial, adjustment. Step out of the punch front tuck. Full turn, walks out of it. 2.5, leg form and a big step forward. Some things throughout but a nice hit! 12.150 (5.0, 7.150)
12:23 pm. Carly Weinberg FX: Stuck double pike! Maybe a little shuffle. Nice. She fought like hell to earn her elite score this year. Front layout to front full, kind of iffy form on both. Solid landing on the double tuck.
12:21 pm. Claire Pease BB: I started at the front aerial, wobbles through it a bit. Jump series to Onodi had some form but she got it. Double tuck, some leg separation, but lands it. 13.150 (5.2, 7.950) – that E seems a bit high especially compared to someone like Rivera, their general technique is vastly different?
Sage Bradford BB 11.950
12:19 pm. Ella Kate Parker FX: Piked full-in, some form and a step back OOB. Triple full, landed it well. Switch ring to tour jeté half. 2.5 to front tuck, sits it, ugh. Split jump full. Double pike, legs apart, but gets it around. 11.300 (4.9, 6.500, -0.1)
12:17 pm. Isabella Anzola UB: Clear hip, blind change with leg form to front giant to straddle Jaeger, stalder, Pak, had to take an extra kip before the toe-on to toe shoot, and the double layout has some form issues but she lands it! 11.550 (4.5, 7.050)
12:16 pm. Simone Rose FX: 1.5 to front double full, ooh, good difficulty! Switch ring to tour jeté half. 2.5 goes a little sideways, still able to punch into a tuck. Triple wolf turn, goes a bit over and has to correct. Double tuck, a little low in the set, but she had a good landing. 12.800 (5.3, 7.500)
Camie Westerman FX 12.600
Jazmyn Jimenez BB 9.800
12:15 pm. Nicole Desmond UB: Ricna, toe full, some form there, Pak with some leg separation, toe shoot, caught a bit close, short handstand before the toe half to front giant half, double tuck with a step. 11.700 (4.4, 7.300)
12:12 pm. Lailah Danzy VT: Yurchenko double full, some form in the air, but a good landing. 13.800
She also did a front pike for her second vault, but she’s too young for junior worlds.
Gabrielle Hardie UB: Maloney to Pak, some leg separation, van Leeuwen, really had to reach for that, beautiful big straddle Jaeger, blind full, and a double layout, little step. That was very good! 13.250 (5.3, 7.950)
Reese Esponda UB 11.850
Izzy Stassi FX 12.800
12:11 pm. Audrey Snyder VT: Yurchenko full with a step back, pretty clean in the air and a solid amount of power. 13.100
Kieryn Finnell VT: Yurchenko full, BEAUTIFUL! And great landing. 13.350
Charleigh Bullock VT 12.900
Adele Ossi UB 11.000
12:08 pm. Hezly Rivera BB: Double wolf turn is very clean. Side aerial. Very nice bhs loso. Beautiful switch to switch half. Front aerial to straddle jump. This is stunning. Switch ring. Deep landing on the double pike, step back, but oh my god this was fantastic. 13.800 (5.5, 8.300)
Tyler Turner VT: Yurchenko full. 13.000 (4.2, 8.900, -0.1)
Sophia Buechler BB 11.650
Harlow Buddendeck VT 12.700
12:06 pm. Jayla Hang FX: Full-in at the start, stuck! Popa, very nice. Switch to switch half. Front full with a step into arabesque. Clean double tuck, she has one kind of flexed foot, but her form is otherwise excellent, strong landing. 12.900 (4.9, 8.000)
Addy Fulcher VT: Yurchenko full, some soft form throughout, but a good landing. 12.900
12:05 pm. Zoey Molomo UB: Stalder to toe full to Maloney to Pak, nice! Van Leeuwen, some leg separation, blind change to straddle Jaeger, some foot form, blind change to double front, step forward. Amazing job! 13.200 (5.4, 7.800)
12:01 pm. I think ones to watch here are probably Zoey Molomo, Jayla Hang, Hezly Rivera, and Audrey Snyder as the top four but everyone’s so close, any falls from this group will mean podium surprises. Izzy Stassi should be interesting now that she changed gyms.
11:58 am. Touch warmup for the first rotation! Live scores are here.
11:55 am. Athletes are being introduced now! National anthem timeeeee.

Little Izzy Anzola!! Here’s hoping she gets her nats qualifying score at Classics this year, she was only 0.250 away today and that was with her issues on bars. She’s such a cute little gymnast.
I hope so! I love that she went to the qualifier to attempt Hopes and not only made junior elite but then improved her score by a lot and finished 8th! Massive.
