COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (AP) -- Agnes Zawadzki is leaving the coach who guided her to the 2010 U.S. junior title to resume training with former coach David Santee.

Santee coached Zawadzki (zuh-WAD-ski) for seven years in her native Chicago before she moved to Colorado Springs to train with Tom Zakrajsek (zuh-CRY-check).

In addition to her U.S. title, Zawadzki was a two-time medalist at the junior world championships in her three years with Zakrajsek, winning the silver in 2010 and the bronze this year. The 16-year-old finished fourth as a senior at this year's U.S. Figure Skating Championships.
