This week's IWSA Water Skier Recognition award goes to Samantha Hoops. Samantha completed a noteworthy 2020 experience. Samantha has skied in the Indiana State Tournaments since she was 8 years old! The 2020 Indiana State tournament, although unique, was one she is very proud of. She earned 1st in jump, 1st in trick, 2nd in slalom, and 1st overall. She also set the state overall record for girls 3. At the Mastercraft Midwest Regionals, she placed 2nd in jump, 2nd in tricks, 2nd in slalom, and 1st Overall.
At the Goode Waterski Nationals in Louisiana, she placed 2nd in jump, 3rd in trick, 3rd in slalom, and 2nd Overall. In her spare time, she is quite proficient on the baseball field! Her favorite places to ski are Hawthorne Lake, Kodiak Lake, and at her home on Heritage Lake. Congratulations Samantha!
To all you interested parties out there......keep the skier recognition nominations coming! It's my goal to publish one article per week. Dave Jarrett
