This past weekend (November 11-12), five senior teams and ten junior teams competed at the Fall Synchro Classic in Irvine, Calf. Most of the teams were debuting their program on competition ice for the first time this season. 
Every Senior team looked solid in November, ensuring fans that it was going to be a competitive season in the Senior division.
Cruising into first place were the Haydenettes, the 29-time National champions set the bar high, earning 210.93 points. Their short program totaled 69.55 points, which is over a five-point improvement from the Finlandia Trophy last month. 
In second place was the other reining World team: Miami University Senior. Miami earned a total of 200.00 points. Skyliners snagged the bronze with 183.32 points, which included their short program to a Britney Spears medley. 
Teams Elite earned the pewter medal at 182.05 points, less than two points less than Skyliners. This is Teams Elite's first year in the Senior division and also featured a Britney Spears medley in the free program. 
The Junior division featured ten different teams, ranging in a variety of themes and choreography. 

Teams Elite began the season with a bang and just shy of 170 points (169.45). The dominate Junior team did not earn a single neutral or negative GOE, making it nearly-impossible for any team to top off. 

Coming in second place was Skyliners with 161.26 points. Although the team had one fall in the short and two in the free, they were able to earn the sliver medal. 

In third place was the Lexettes, who earned a total of 160.90 points. Just .4 points behind them was Team Image, the 2022 National Champions. 

The next competition for many of these teams will either be the Boston Classic in Mass. or the Kalamazoo Kick-Off Classic in Mich. this weekend (Nov. 18-20).
