Interesting that they’re only sending 2 to Jesolo.

ETA: I wonder what happened to Zoey Molomo? And these scores are a good bit higher than Winter Cup. “Ah, yeah, you all were a little too harsh at Winter Cup. Maybe be slightly kinder with the scores?”

can we dare to think that they want the seniors to have realistic scoring and Jessohigh was not sending the right message to make corrections.
Lauren Hopkins said on Twitter it was a budget issue. They planned on doing both, then decided only to do DTB.
