National Qualifying Series

The NQS, held June 1 through September 15, is an extension of the U.S. Figure Skating qualifying pipeline.  The series gave juvenile through senior level athletes in singles, pairs and dance the opportunity to compete at official competitions nationwide to earn scores that resulted in national and sectional rankings.  Singles athletes who ranked in the top six in their section secured a spot at their respective Sectional Singles Final, while pairs and dance teams ranking in the top three nationwide earned their spot at the U.S. Pairs or U.S. Dance Final.  More than 230 athletes qualified for their sectional or U.S. Final through this system. The following skaters earned personalized certificates along with a pin showing their level of achievement: Gold Pins:  top 25% at their level; Silver Pins:  top 50% at their level; Multi-Colored:  competed at a contested NQS event, but did not earn a gold or silver distinction.

GOLD PIN WINNERS: Anna Sophia O’Brien, Kirk Haugeto Paige Parlapiano, Robert Yampolsky.

SILVER PIN WINNERS: Adrian Vecchio, Ava Battaglia, Jillian Falletta, Kristina Haviland.

MULTI-COLORED PIN WINNERS: Adelyn Hoo, Amanda Hsu, Anton Fomin, Audrey Steinbach, Sara Neivert, Valeria Gusarova, Victoria Haviland.
