The key skaters going Wednesday night:

Polina Edmunds -- 9:49 p.m. ET
Bradie Tennell -- 10:41 p.m.
Mariah Bell -- 11:35 p.m.
Mirai Nagasu -- 11:42 p.m.
Ashley Wagner -- 12:15 a.m.
Karen Chen -- 12:47 a.m.

The three-woman Olympic team will be named after Friday night’s free skate, but it might not be the top three finishers. A committee chooses the team, looking at results from the past year.

Wagner has the most experience as three-time U.S. champion and a Sochi Olympian.

But Tennell is the highest-scoring U.S. woman this season, Nagasu plans a triple Axel and Chen is the defending champion.

Gracie Gold, the top U.S. woman in Sochi, is sitting out nationals after receiving treatment for depression, anxiety and an eating disorder. Gold is in San Jose to support the competing skaters.
