Dane: "My favorite memory from being with this team this year was seeing the support our team had for each other at Collegiate Nationals. Everyone worked really hard to accomplish their goals on the water and a lot of it was because of the support of our teammates. Skiing back to shore with your entire team celebrating for you is something I’ll never forget."
Charlotte: "My favorite memory of course comes from the 2014 Collegiate Nationals. Friday we finished the day with Women’s Jump, our last rotation was Matilda Mostrom. Her personal best before this tournament was around 105 feet and she went out there the 2nd to last skier of the event and booted a 115-foot jump. I remember running down the bank to her and she was crying because she was so happy and couldn’t believe what she and this team had helped her do."
Taryn: "When we are all together laughing and having a good time. Nationals this year was amazing. We really came together as a team to honor Steve Tyler. With that motivation we supported, encouraged, and cheered for one another. It was definitely an event to remember."
Matilda: "My best memory is all the sprints we made down the shore at Nationals to greet all of our dear teammates after they had skied."
Chris: "It is by far the unconditional love and respect we have for each other, what I got to experience this last year with this team year is a memory that is unforgettable. Having a group of very diversified people in an individual sport who put that aside and treat each other like family is uncommon and we would like to thank USA Water Ski and NCWSA for everything that they do for collegiate water skiing. It is awesome!"
Cole: "My favorite memory from this last year is Nationals as a whole. With all the things going on, seeing everyone give it everything they had, people winning medals, the team finishing second, but everyone coming together. All of the hugs coming out of the water, the cheers, and unity were the best part. It was not an easy week, but standing together made it all worth it."
