Ware (Montreal, QC) scored 330.10 points and is fourth following the preliminary round.
“I actually felt really good coming in today, I felt more than ready,” Ware said. “There was a couple little mistakes but I it’s just the prelims and I know that I’m going to be able to clean it up for the semis and the finals.
“I was just so excited to compete, I wasn’t really that nervous, which is good for me. I usually have way too much adrenaline, but I felt really really good today.”
