It was a tight battle in the U17 Boys Jump event. Aaron Bartlett edged out some strong competition to take home the Bronze medal.

Cameron Davis ran away with the U17 Slalom taking Gold with a score of 1 buoy at 35 off. She brings home the Silver in the Trick event, scoring 4250 points in the final round. Cameron flew to victory in the Jump event, securing both the Gold medal and the Overall win. She saved her longest jump of the tournament for the finals reaching a distance of 94′.

All three of our Eastern Region U21 Women made the finals in the Jump event. Congratulations to Sage Pottbecker, the Gold medal recipient with a jump of 127′. Samantha Hill took Silver with 114′. Solie Stenger ended in fourth place, but will remember round 2 in this tournament, because it was her first jump over 100′. Welcome to the Century Club Solie!

In the U21 Trick event, Samantha Hill showed great consistency with a strong performance and received the Bronze medal.

Finally, the U21 Slalom event was a battle to the end. The final round ended with a three way tie between Emma Goldstein, Sage Pottbecker and Solie Stenger. (2@35 off) All three had to start the runoff round at 34mph and 32 off. Sage had the unenviable position of first off, needing to set the bar as high as possible. Solie drew second, putting up a good score of 1.5 @ 35 off, but she knew that she left the door open for Emma.
Both Solie with Silver and Sage with Bronze showed everyone that EAST IS BEAST!
