Wonder Lake Wins NSSA Central Regionals

The Wonder Lake Water Ski Show Team (Wonder Lake, Ill.) won the team title at the 2018 Central Regional Show Ski Championships, July 14-15, at Hidden Lake in Warsaw, Ind. Wonder Lake earned top awards for ballet, jump, towboat driving and sound crew on the way to tallying 1,660.4 points. The Backwater Gamblers (Rock Island, Ill.) placed second with 1,530.63 points in the seven-team field.

In competitive show skiing, each club has one hour to present a theatrical performance on water skis. Judges score the acts by awarding points based on originality, presentation and execution. Elaborate costumes and staging intermix with music and fast action on the water as an announcer leads the audience through the show.

Lake City (Warsaw, Ind.), Chippewa Lake (Chippewa Lake, Ohio), Ski Broncs (Loves Park, Ill.), Lake St. Louis (St. Louis, Mo.) and Silver Lake (Fenton, Mich.) rounded out the team placements.

The Central Regional Show Ski Championships also featured athletes competing individually in adagio doubles, swivel, freestyle jumping and team jumping acts.

The tournament was originally scheduled to take place in Rock Island, Ill., but was moved due to high water at the Backwater Gamblersí site in Rock Island.†
