In typical Marta style, she hasn’t bothered to announce who the alternate is. My money is on Sloan, who hasn’t looked terrific in quite some time and is also apparently battling injuries, but rumor has it that Bross is injured too, so who knows? Naturally Shapiro broke at camp, poor kid. Hunter didn’t make it, which is a bit of a surprise and a huge blow for her. I also feel like it’s evidence that the best days of Hill’s are behind it.
Davis made it, which makes me happy for her–she does work hard and she is adorable and she was written off a few years ago. Plus, Burdette is a nice guy! And yay for Caquatto, although she is going to need to be a hell of a lot steadier than she has been. But her bars are nice.
Obviously I’m THRILLED that Larson and Sacramone are on the team. They need to go kick ass.
