Randi Stageberg was good. She did a nice DTY (got fourth in vault) and a fantastic floor. She did a Dos Santos, Full-In Pike, Double Twist, 5/2 + Layout, and Double Pike. She easily won floor. Bad stuff, she fell twice on beam, on her full twist w/ leg @ hor. and her side somi. I got to meet her after the meet, I was soo happy =D

Amber Trani was a letdown =[ She fell on her double pike on floor and only did a Yurchenko layout on vault.

I'm now a Corrie Lothrop fan. Her floor was fantastic. She fell hard on an Aerial Roundoff + Backhandspring Stepout + Backlayout sequence and missed the beam completely on her back layout.

Ashley Stott was a surprise. She has a DTY and a VERY nice floor. So much personality, reminds me of Joura. Marta was giving her a serious talk after she won the AA. =]

Caquatto fell on her 5/2 dismount on beam. Her head almost hit the end, it was scary.

Britney Ranzy was also a surprise. She had a HUGE double layout on floor, and a very nice DTY.

Carly Patterson was there, she was signing autographs and giving pictures (which I got both of). The "World Debut" of her music video happened also. It wasn't bad. =]
