Cutting Edge 2019 - 16th - 18th August
Cliff Lakes, Tamworth
Wow! wow! wow! What a weekend...
For the first time ever LLangorse Lake Waterski Club entered a team 'The Llangorse Legends' into the BWSW Cutting Edge Competition 2019 and placed 5th out of 13 teams!
The Cutting Edge Boat Competition is a national grassroots competition for young skiers and riders aged 16 and under to compete against each other individually and in regional teams, and showcase what they have learnt over the last year.
Our team 'The Llangorse Legends' headed up by team manager and coach Martyn Reakes, working along side Training Officer Steve Williams were:
Liam Williams, Joshua Ashman, Leah Ashman - Penny, Jasmine Lapish, Emily Reakes, & Georgia Lakey.
Our 6 competitors had fantastic results over 4 disciplines and a big shout out must go to Leah Ashman-Penny and Emily Reakes who took joint top girl award in the Kneeboard Slalom event, both 11th out of 56 - Well done girls!
Joshua Ashman placed 5th in the Slalom out of 49, followed by Liam Williams in 11th place. Well done lads!
Although we did not take a podium place, coming 5th for our first year is a massive step forward for such a small club like Llangorse and we are very proud of our achievements.
A huge congratulations to all of the LLWSC Cutting Edge Team for incredible effort and determination throughout the whole event. Thanks to all of the parents, supporters, and everyone who helped out in making the weekend such a success.
