The Crystallettes turned in strong performances in their second trip to Worlds in three years.


Mass., put together equally strong programs on the biggest of stages. Teir short program to the song “Mer-


cy” by Duffy garnered high praise from the coaching tandem of Shannon Peterson and Holly Teets.


"Tat was the best short skate of the


year,” Peterson said. “Tey put it all together when it mattered most.” Teir free skate to a medley of Jenni- fer Lopez songs featured several strong ele- ments, including a wheel, movement in iso- lation and an angled intersection. Te crowd enjoyed the music, as fans from all over the world clapped along to the beat. “I was excited to see the improvement


that we’ve made to our free skate since the U.S. Championships,” Teets said. “Tey went out there and executed a strong pro-


gram. Tey were disappointed about missing some of the technical element calls, but we will be working hard to make improvements for next season.”
