Devastating Results and the Reality of the Sport

Well, OUSST was reminded of the craziness of skating this past weekend when we placed 9th out of 10 at Mid-Pac.  It was a devastating blow that really left a stain on spirits.  We aren't really sure why we placed so low other than our program simply being not what the judges were looking for.  We didn't fall and we didn't have any breaks. 

Of course we were disappointed, but this is a perfect example of how crazy figure skating can be.  Unlike football or basketball (when you make a free-throw or throw a touch down, everyone knows it and it can't be disputed), figure skating is "secretive."  We never will know why we placed 9th.  All we can hope is the next competition, we will have better results.
