Waterhawks Win NSSA Midwest Regionals

The Waterhawks Ski Team (Evansdale, Iowa) won the 2019 NSSA Midwest Regional Show Ski Championships, July 27-28, in Evansdale, Iowa. The Waterhawks tallied a grand total 1,604.83 points after earning high-scoring awards for dock and equipment personnel, pick-up boat crews, towboat driving, high individual club act and barefoot. The Midwest Ski Otters (White Bear Lake, Minn.) placed second (1,452.03 points) followed by the Twin Cities River Rats (Minneapolis, Minn.) with 1,430.67 points.

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.

Individual event winners were: Caroline Grubs (White Bear Lake, Minn.), swivel (16.17 points); Ryan Hoops (St. Paul, Minn.) and Brooke Elfert (Stillwater, Minn.), doubles (15.00 points); Noah Leach (Aberdeen, S.D.), freestyle jumping (669.17 points); and the Twin Cities River Rats (Minneapolis, Minn.), team jumping (56.33 points).
