The UNT wake club hosted their first tournament in Little Elm form March 23-24, with four athletes placing at the end of the tournament. The tournament had two parts, one being pulled boat and the other cable. Three athletes advanced to the beginner’s cable finals Sunday afternoon.

Sophomores Robert McCullough and juniors Seth Spears and Kieler Isham advanced to the finals in the men’s beginners division. Sophomores Josh Nicholson and Skylar Beill placed in their competing categories along with McCullogh and Isham. Nicholson placed second in the men’s advanced boat portion and Biell placed third. McCullough placed first in the beginner’s men cable portion and Isham placed third. Isham also placed third in the men’s open cable.

“I think the tournament went phenomenal,” Isham said. “The team came together and put on a well run, smooth competition. I am extremely proud of our team and a huge thanks to everyone that came out and all of our sponsors.”  

Next, the UNT wake team will be competing in the Texas State Collegiate Classic on April 5 at Texas Ski Ranch.

Senior and club president Michala Moore is looking forward to future competitions with a strong team and individuals going into their next competition.

“The biggest challenges we face [in the upcoming competitions] is just learning something new we haven’t done before,” Moore said. “Honestly, I feel like we have a solid team and that we’re quick on our feet and make anything happen we set our minds to.”
