             === Wagner falls, but repeats as national champion ===
 
 Omaha,  NE (Sports  Network) - Despite two falls Saturday night, Ashley Wagner
 repeated as women's champion at the U.S. Figure Skating Championships.
 
 Wagner  became  the first  woman  to  win  consecutive national  titles  since
 Michelle Kwan's eight straight championships (1998-2005).
 
 The  21-year-old Wagner,  who  finished  in fourth  place  at  the last  World
 Championships,  fell during  her triple lutz and during a triple loop sequence
 in  the  middle of  her performance. She  still recovered to  get a free skate
 program score of 121.27 to finish with a two-day total of 188.84 points.
 
 That  was just enough  to end Gracie Gold (186.57), who moved from ninth place
 after the short program all the way to second.
 
 The  17-year-old Gold,  the 2012  U.S.  Junior national  champion, had  132.49
 points during the free skate.
 
 Agnes  Zawadzki, who  won  last  year's short  program  and  was second  after
 Thursday's competition, ended in third place with 179.63 points.
