In her junior year, Allison Mak was a staple on all four events, competing all-around in every meet but one. Her vault score was often the highest on the team, and she tied her 9.575 career high at Maryland. Her best performance was at the Ivy Classic, where she had her career high bars (9.55) and all-around (37.9) scores. She placed sixth on vault and bars, and third on beam and in the all-around. However, Mak's shining moment came when she scored a career high 9.85 on beam at the ECAC Championships and won the event, becoming Yale's first ECAC beam champion. As a sophomore, Mak was a constant in the vault, beam, and floor line-ups, and she competed all four events twice. Beam continued to be a strong point, and she won the event three times during the season. She received the ECAC Coaches' Choice Award after the season opener at Springfield. At the UAA dual meet, she set a career high on vault with a 9.575. At the Nutmeg Classic, she set her career high on beam, scoring a 9.775. In two competitions, she scored above a 9.5 in her three main events, including the Ivy Classic. Fighting a knee injury, Mak was able to compete on beam in seven meets during the 2006-2007 season. She received the ECAC Coaches' Choice Award following the first week of competition when she scored an 8.975. At the Rutgers quad meet, she received a 9.575. Mak's continual recovery and arsenal of unusual skills show that she will be a key gymnast in several line-ups in the next few years. Mak joined the Bulldogs from Sport Seneca. She competed at the National Open level for four years, qualifying to the Canadian Nationals in 2005 where she placed 5th in the all-around. At the National qualifying meet, Elite Ontario, she placed 2nd in the all-around and was the beam champion. Mak graduated from Northview Heights.
