Mary Hamilton, a sophomore rom Bucyrus, practices at MoKan Lake with the University water skiing club, the Sprayhawks.Twelve o the 36 members headed to El Centro, Cali., on Sunday to compete in the Collegiate Water Ski Nationals.
Te braided ski rope whippedback into the 2008 Nautique, andthe boat driver threw the throttleinto neutral. Mary Hamilton, asophomore rom Bucyrus, re-leased the rope’s handle and sunk graceully under the lake’s sur-ace. In a tournament, Hamiltonwould have been disqualied orthis, but luckily it was only prac-tice or the Sprayhawks, the Uni- versity’s water skiing club.Last Friday, three members o the Sprayhawks visited the pri- vate docks o MoKan Lake, o K-10, or one nal practice o theseason. On Sunday, 12 o the 36members headed out in an RVto sunny El Centro, Cali. or theCollegiate Water Ski Nationals.oday they will compete in sla-lom, trick and jump aer havingplaced rst in the region at previ-ous tournaments.“We’re competing against teamsthat are on scholarships, sothere’s less pressure or us,” saidclub president Abbey Bays, a ju-nior rom Lecompton. “We’re aclub sport. Everyone else has totake it seriously.”Until the week o Nationals, theteam made it out to the water-ront nearly every day. Tey scat-tered the dock with water skis,wakeboards, vests and ropes.Between ski runs, individualseven worked on homework. Testeam whistle sounding aintly inthe distance oered a sufcientreminder that they still had class.“An ideal day would be when weall get out here at 2 p.m.,” Hamil-ton said. “It’s sunny with no wind,we tan and everyone skis.”Fun and games aside, the Spray-hawks know how to get serious.Members o the club team arenationally ranked. According toUSA Water Ski, Hamilton standsin ninth place and Bays holdsseventh place in the Midwesttrick category, determined by conerences throughout the year.Given 20 seconds each run, Bayssaid she can perorm 15 tricks onaverage.ricks can be perormed on oneski, two skis or a wakeboard. Oneski, or slalom skiing, earns morepoints or its difculty.In the slalom event, the boatdriver must punch the throt-tle rom zero to 34 mph to starto, and skiers maneuver sharply around buoys at speeds o morethan 70 mph in a zigzag pattern.Good orm is key in order toprevent any injury. Straight arms,strong legs and a solid core pre- vent wipeouts. Many members o the team, like Hamilton and Bays,started skiing at a young age andhave developed their skills overmany years. However, beginnersshouldn’t be intimidated.Jake Waldenmeyer, a sopho-more rom Leawood, considershimsel a newbie. Despite thegirls' teasing, he insists on sport-ing a ull body wetsuit. He saidwater temperature can drop to aslow as 40 degrees.“Such a chick,” Bays said.easing aside, Bays said theteam is one big amily. Te clubis student-motivated, and parentsinvest their time, money and o-er hospitality.“Te guys who are letting us usethe RV, Dylan and Drew Brittain,their parents come to every sin-gle tournament,” Hamilton said.“Tey’ll even make us breakast,lunch and dinner.”In addition to packing equip-ment, members made sure tobring a variety o costumes orthe Nationals tradition o themeddinners, like Aladdin and Mexiconights.“It’s the best way to spend allbreak,” Waldenmeyer said.Read how the club team per-ormed at Nationals at Kansan.com.
