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.

While the Hartwick Huskys won the Division 2 national title for the second consecutive year and fourth time (2009, 2011, 2018, 2019) since the inception of the event, it turned out to be one of the closest finishes in the tournament’s history. The Huskys tallied a grand total 1,237.67 points and edged the second-place Ski Broncs (Loves Park, Ill.) by less than four points (1,233.97 points) and the third-place Brown’s Lake Aquaducks (Burlington, Wis.) by a little more than five points (1,232.3 points).

The Division 2 Show Ski National Championships also featured athletes competing individually in swivel, doubles and team jumping acts. Kate Draeger (Lac Du Flambeau, Wis.) won swivel, scoring 12.86 points; Sarah Fiedorowicz (Waupaca, Wis.) and Bear Fiedorowicz (Waupaca, Wis.) won doubles, tallying 11.60 points; and the Kwahamot Water Ski Club (Tomahawk, Wis.) won team jumping, scoring 39.33 points.
