Displaying impressive flexibility and high-level spins in addition to strong jumps, Jaclyn Yacomes (Body Zone FSC) earned the silver with an elegant skate that earned 53.55 points. She nudged out Brianna Jones (Burnsville-MN Valley FSC), who won the bronze medal with 52.63 points. This was Brianna's first time skating at the U.S. adult championships.
Carly Harris-Koleczko (Mount Clemens FSC) took home the pewter medal with 44.32 points. This was also her first U.S. adult championships as a skater; she once acted as a coach for her mother, Cathy Harris, when she competed at the silver level at one of the earliest adult championships back in Lake Placid, N.Y.
