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

running swimmi t r a i n i n ^^v aspect of the athlete lines A smoke cleared from the gun, more than 150 students and community members began a long and difficult journey. The Wildcat Sprint Triathlon, a swimming, cycling and running competition, raised $500 on Sept. 9 for the Manhattan Marlins Youth Swim Team. Dana Townsend, women ' s division winner and junior in dietetics, was in her fifth full season of triathlon competition. " You are actually training in three sports. It does take a tremendous time commitment, " Townsend said. Running 25-30 miles, cycling 100 miles and swimming 9,000-10,000 yards, Townsend averaged between 11 and 12 hours per week training. " I probably enjoy the training the most, and you have to compete to train well, " Townsend said. " I don ' t think you can do your best unless you race. " Instead of participating in the triathlon, students could work as one of 60 volunteers, Alberto Delgado, race volunteer coordinator and associate professor in mathematics, said. " The volunteers were used to helping with timing, registra- tion, water stops, directing traffic, transition areas and race statistics, " he said. Safety was a major concern of the coordinators. " The swim is one of the most dangerous parts because it is an open swim, " Harvard Townsend, race coordinator and systems administrator in computing and information sciences, said. " The other danger is when the triathletes take corners on their bicycles. " The competition attracted different types of people - some out for fun, others out for competition and experience. " It would be a great race for students to try, " Dana Townsend said. " You put yourself on the line, and you will be tested. This will teach you something about yourself. " by J.J. Kuntz and Katie Thomas -Triathlon- 13
