Potential Grand Prix Ladies

There are 30 ladies on the list including several skaters that competed as juniors and may choose to move up to seniors or return to the Junior Grand Prix.  This list was compiled using previous criteria for determining Grand Prix assignments.

There are 60 Grand Prix slots (including host picks) with 41 of the 60 slots filled from this list.  Angela Wang has confirmed she's remaining junior this season.  Hannah Miller and Satoko Miyahara will likely be returning to the Junior Grand Prix.  Given the history of Russian ladies the last few seasons, Elena Radionova is likely to move up to seniors as she swept all of the junior events last season.  Anna Pogorilaya is a toss up as she is still age eligible but medaled at the Junior Grand Prix Final and at Junior Worlds. 

The assignments will be released on June 1st.
