Teryl Hixon, sophomore in park resources management, lands after jumping from the ski jump during a fall practice near the Stockdale Park area of Tuttle Creek Reservoir. Besides jump events, the K-State Water Ski Team also competed in slalom and trick competitions. (Photo by Darren Whitley) Drenden Wirth, freshman in arts and sciences, falls while performing a trick during an evening practice. The team was given the option of practicing early in the morning or late in the evening because fewer recreational skiers were on the lake at these times. With less activity and calmer waters, members were able to practice the slalom course, jumps and other skiing maneuvers. (Photo by Darren Whitley) With all eyes watching the skier, Doug Rothgeb, senior in architectural engineering, drives one of the boats used by the ski team during practice. Members used three different boats, one belonging to adviser Fred Gibbs and two others belonging to team members. Along with donating his boat, Gibbs offered his time, talent and expertise for the benefit and success of the skiers. (Photo by Darren Whitley) -Water Ski Team- 1

d e d i c a t d the limits am pushes the body b e x p e r i e n i o n ater warriors Golden rays sparkled across the water as the sun began to rise. Suddenly, the roar of a boat engine shattered the silence as a skier emerged from the water. " I like to begin skiing at 6:30 a.m., " Travis Teichmann, ski team vice president and senior in construction science, said. " The recreational skiers are not around and it is quieter and easier to practice. " Most members had never competed before joining the team, Travis Pape, ski team president and senior in milling science and management, said. " Most of them were recreational skiers, " Pape said. " I would say probably about 80 percent. " Inexperienced team members learned skills during practice. " There is a misconception about the ski team, " Lori Wendling, ski team vice president and senior in pre-occupational therapy, said. " We learn while we are practicing with the team. " Dedication made the difference between recreational skiers and the 25-member team. " The recreational skier will ski as his body allows him to ski, " Fred Gibbs, ski team adviser, said. " The competitive skier has to have correct position and form, and they have to make their body go how the course is set. " During the summer individuals accumulated points at tournaments that counted toward team points at regional and state events, Teichmann said. The University, funded trips to regional and state team meets, but members paid their own entry fees for other competitions. Regardless of whether they competed in jump, trick or slalom events, team members shared a love for the sport. " Skiing is the best competitive sport, " Teichmann said. " It is a serious sport that I give 110 percent to. " by Maria Sherrill 1 -Water Ski Team-
