Antwuan Dixon – Antwuan was apparently feeling better and nailed a nollie heel crooks and nollie heel boardslide.
Jon Goeman – Jon got a 6.67 for his score, so even though I don’t necessarily remember I’m going to assume that he really didn’t do too much.
Jereme Rogers – Koston may have blown it, but Jereme came through for the Girl corner. He did everything switch – 360 flip, kickflip, fs and bs smith, bs lip, and probably some others that I can’t remember that earned him second place.
Matt Bennett – Matt did what some people are calling the Bennett grind, which is a backside 180 to switch back smith. He was working on it switch and got hurt, which brought in pinch-hitter, Josh Harmony, who kept getting pitched on frontside nosegrinds to fakie.
Angel Ramirez – I’ll be damned if I can remember what Angel did, but he ended up in eighth, which ain’t all that bad.
Sheldon Meleshinski – Sauder didn’t skate, so The Chief commissioned Sheldon Meleshinski once again to compete.
Nyjah Huston – Switch heels and many other stair tricks got dad to yell from the crowd, “Skate the rail.” Nyjah must have heard him because he kickflipped into a front board and did a variety of other moves that landed him in fourth.
