The Prudential U.S. Figure Skating Championships concluded another round of action Sunday with a few close calls in some events.

The top two spots in the intermediate ladies' and novice men's divisions, which proved to be the most exciting rounds of the evening, were decided by slim margins.

Here's a look at the scores from Sunday's action:

In the intermediate ladies' division, it took a score of 70.00 in the free-skate final round for Alysa Liu to take home the championship, edging out Sophia Chouinard, who finished with a score of 109.97. Chouinard put together a stellar 70.95 in the free-skate round, but her 39.02 in the short program turned out to be too much to overcome.

Liu scored a 40.24 in the short program to establish a narrow, albeit solid, lead heading into the final round.

U.S. Figure Skating congratulated Liu after her victory:

Fellow skater Polina Edmunds also congratulated the new champion of the young women's division:

In the novice men's division, Eric Sjoberg will take a slim 1.16-point lead over Maxim Naumov into Monday's free-skate round.

It was also a dominant day for Joseph Kang, who ran away with the intermediate men's national championship, winning by 11.59 points over Alex Wellman. Twins Joshua and Jasmine Fendi won the intermediate pairs title by four points.

U.S. Figure Skating congratulated the winners:

Monday's rounds will decide the champions of the novice men's, ladies' and pairs divisions before action picks up again Tuesday with the junior levels.
