The Indiana Water Ski Championships was a record breaking event! Record breaking temperatures hovering near the 100 degree mark and broken state records were the order of the day! Fortunately there was plenty of shade for the spectators and officials and the ability to "cool off" in the 90 degree water helped! The "soft" Timberlake water provided for many state championship records to be broken. Due to technical issues and the large number of skiers, the trick portion of the event had to be delayed until Sunday morning. An early morning thunder storm dumped record amounts of rain causing the lake to rise approximately 1 foot and all the buoys disappeared! The buoys were re-adjusted and the lake cleaned up to finish the event before noon on Sunday. Hats off to all of the Schmitt families and the officials for a record setting event.
The State Records set where:
Girls 1 Slalom-Julie Mishler 1@32off
