Another ULM "water" team chalks up win

Posted: Updated:

MONROE, La., (KNOE 8 News) - The University of Louisiana at Monroe Warhawk Wakeboard team won the USA Wakeboard South Central Regional and the Louisiana Collegiate Wake Tour Competition this month.

Nick McDonald (B.S. '11), the alumni advisor for the ULM Wakeboard team, said, "The competition was by far the hardest regional this year and was the biggest regional ever with 112 riders.

Due to the size and difficulty of the regional, Warhawk Wake is expected to be either the number one or number two seed heading into the CBS Sports' Alt Games National Championships in May of 2013."

The Warhawk Wake team, a ULM recognized student organization, won the South Central Regional competition over past national champion, the University of Texas. Texas Tech University, Louisiana State University, The University of Mississippi, Mississippi State University, Oklahoma State University, the University of Southern Mississippi, Louisiana Tech University, and Nicholls State University were all represented in the competition.

Six of ULM's team riders placed in the top three of their division with Trevor Duncan winning the Men's B Division.

The Warhawk Wakeboard team, now four years old, also won the LCWT in a dominating performance, with the University of Texas coming in 500 points behind ULM.
