This and That
Sam Peszek fractured her foot in practice Sunday. Miss Val says it is a blessing in disguise to heal her ankle. For Peszek, this is yet another body part to give out on her. UCLA is hoping to have Peszek back mid-season.
Down in the swamp, the Gators look strong heading into the season. Alaina Johnson went 9.9 on all four events during the latest intrasquad after having time off in order to heal a bruised rib. Kytra Hunter is not in Gainesville with the team.
With all of the injuries, it looks like Florida and Alabama are likely to start off the season the strongest. Several teams are loaded with freshmen, which will likely mean a lot of strong routines and a lot of mistakes early on.
Geralen Stack-Eaton will miss the first few meets for Alabama due to a strained quad sustained in practice last week.
Tara Lipinski and Evan Lysacek skated together at the Toyota Sports Center today and tweeted about it. They appear to be BFF, which is fitting considered how many skating aficionados feel about both of their Olympic wins.
