Kristen Santos dominates the women's competition

Kristen Santos won the women's competition with 204 points. The 26 year old skater was clearly the strongest skater throughout the weekend by winning all three distances in convincing fashion. She also set two American records on the final day of competition. Her closest rival was Corinne Stoddard who took second place with 110 points. Julie Letai, Maame Biney and Hailey Choi finished third, fourth and fifth.

Pivirotto's closest rival was Andrew Heo who finished second with 112 points. Brandon Kim, Clayton Declemente and Adam Callister rounded out the top five.
