Skaters to watch:
Novice Ladies: Karen Chen set the highest total regional score with an impressive 135.87.

Junior Ladies: Polina Edmunds and Katarina Kulgeyko competed at nationals last season and Kulgeyko took home a medal which earned her a spot on the JGP earlier this season.  Edmunds scored in the top 10 at regionals while Kulgeyko finished in the top 15.

Senior Ladies:  Caroline Zhang makes her bid for nationals after a Skate America and Ice Challenge assignment earlier this season.  Leah Keiser failed to qualify for nationals as a junior last season after winning the novice title in 2010.  She is competing as a senior this season and will be looking for a spot on the junior worlds team as she is not old enough to compete as a senior internationally.

Novice Men: Vincent Zhou and Kevin Shum set the top two regional scores with a comfortable margin.

Junior Men: Nathan Chen became the first man to win back to back novice titles and has moved to the junior level with a full repertoire of triple jumps and is working on a triple axel.  Four other skaters from this section competed on the Junior Grand Prix: Shotaro Omori, Philip Warren, Jay Yostano and David Wang.

Senior Men: Keegan Messing won Cup of Nice, Douglas Razzano finished 7th at Skate America and Jonathan Cassar finished 4th at Ondrej Nepala.

Junior Dance: Heritage/Fast and Pogrebinsky/Gudis who competed as novices last year move up to juniors this season.

Senior Dance: Reigning junior champions Lichtman/Copely face off against Olson/Cowan, Pilgrim/Lorello and Samuelson/Gilles
