Big congratulations to Jake Bridges of Golden Falls WSC. Now studying at the University of Louisiana at Monroe (ULM) – part of the Eastern Region.

The National Collegiate Water Ski Association’s Eastern Region won the coveted team title at the 19th Collegiate All-Stars Water Ski Championships on Sunday at Beaver Lake in Ahoskie, North Carolina. The two-day event included the top-10 men and top-10 women from each of the National Collegiate Water Ski Association’s four regions vying for the coveted regional team title and individual titles in slalom, tricks, jumping and overall.

Jake took the Jump title with a distance of 47.2m and also came 3rd in Slalom with 4 Buoys on the 12m line. Congratulations Jake.

This a “FIRST” for an Irish athlete and we look forward to seeing Jake back for our own Nationals Championships if he can escape from his studies.
