Caitlin was named to the All American team at the NCVF. She helped her team recive third place at nationals and third place at regionals. Her teammates said that, " Cait is a team leader that constantly works hard and keeps our team on course. She is a leader in our program and is one of the best people I have ever met. She is an awesome teammate and a great person. She made the season so fun with her positive attitude. She's a great libero and motivates the entire team." Congrats Caitlin!

This year Hunter placed 4th at division two nationals in slalom, trick, and overall. He placed 3rd in trick in the Great Plains Conference, was the Midwest region slalom runner up, Midwest region overall 4th place, and will be traveling back to Monroe, LA to represent UWL as one of the top skiers from the region at the National Collegiate Waterski Association All Star tournament. His teammates awarded him with the team most valuable male skier and hardest worker awards. 

 

His teammates said that, "during the season, he spent every afternoon and evening on the water, driving and coaching countless skiers. He exercised an extreme amount of patience after hearing "Hunter, what can I do to improve this?" and "what did I do wrong?", over and over again from all our team members. He always pushed our members to work harder and try new things, helping our team grow and improve. He helped lead our team to nationals not only with his skiing, but also with his commitment to others on the team. He could consistently be found driving the team trailer to tournaments and helping out in the boat or with scoring. He pushed himself on the water, but also in school, understanding the importance of both despite how tough either of them became." Congrats Hunter!
