The Canyon Lake Ski Club held its first tournament for 2015 this past weekend, May 16 and 17. Thirty-three skiers competed over the two-day competition in slalom, trick, and jump events.
Skiers count their best tournament performance score for placement in each of the disciplines. Scores are then submitted to USA Water Ski to be included for calculating each skier’s placement on the national ranking list.
The national ranking list scores are used to determine which skiers earn the right to compete in the Regional and/or National Championship tournaments.
Canyon Lake skiers placed as follows:
Slalom – Sabrina Bargar took 2nd in G3 (Girls 3); Erik Larson took 1st in M1 (Men 1). Mike Kerber took 3rd and Steven Volz took 4th in M3. Rick Jacob took 3rd and Joe Quinn took 4th in M4.
