Alissa Czisny did not make the Olympics in 2006, but she did make the U.S. World Figure Skating Team in 2007. At the 2007 U.S. National Figure Skating Championships, she won the freeskating portion of the event.
In 2006, Danielle Kahle won both the Southwest Pacific regional and the Pacific Coast sectional, but did not place in the top ten at the U.S. National Figure Skating Championships. In 2007, she won the Pacific Coast sectional again and came in sixth at the U.S. National Figure Skating Championships.
