At 1:10pm Pacific time, the final event of the Masters/Teens divisions will begin. Here are the races to keep an eye on.

  • Teen Girls 14-15. Haley Adams leads Kaela Stephano by 2 points. Whoever finishes first between these two athletes will take the title.
  • Teen Girls 16-17. Allison Weiss and Alexis Raptis will be battling for the top spot during Event 7. Weiss holds a 6-point advantage but with two 1st places finishes, Raptis holds the tie breaker if she can edge out Weiss by a position.
  • Masters Men 45-49. Ron Mathews gave some of his lead back to Brent Maier and Scott Jones this morning during the D-Ball Triplet. Mathews doesn’t have to been those chasing him, but he can’t lose by more than a place or two.
  •  Masters Women 55-59. Mary Beth Prodomides and Blanca Williams are separated by 10 points heading into the final event. Williams has battled back from a devastating 10th place finish in the first event to have a shot at winning the title. If Williams can beat Prodromides by two positions, she will be standing at the top of the podium.
  • Masters Women 60+. Lidia Beer has been criticized on social media for not completing full range of motion on her ring dips during the Masters Qualifier. Then during Adios Amigos, Beer was no repped on her ring dips pushing her down to 15th for the event. With all top 3 finishes outside that event, Beer has an outside shot at passing Shaun Havard should Havard struggle at the end.

The leaders of the other divisions have either mathematically locked up the title with one event remaining or would have to finish last to fall out of the top spot. Nicholas Paladino and Shawn Ramirez will be win their divisions once again (Ramirez for the 4th consecutive year).
