When you go undefeated in pro tournaments and take home two gold medals at the World Championships , you’ve got a pretty strong case for end-of-the year accolades. Just ask Regina Jaquess, who achieved both on her way to being named USA Water Ski’s Female Athlete of the year for the fourth-consecutive year.
From USA Water Ski:
This marks the fourth consecutive and ninth time in her career that Jaquess has been selected USA Water Ski’s Female Athlete of the Year. She won slalom titles at the Masters, Swiss Pro Slalom, Malibu Cup, GOODE Water Ski National Championships, Malibu Open, California Pro Am, U.S. Open and Water Ski World Championships. Jaquess won jumping titles at the Pan American Games and Nationals, and she won overall titles at the Pan American Games, Nationals, U.S. Open and Water Ski World Championships, becoming the only female to win four career world overall titles.
Friend of GOODE Skis Freddy Krueger was named Male Athlete of the Year, while GOODE skier Lori Krueger-Covington was named USA Water Ski Coach of the Year for her work with the 2015 U.S. Pan American Water Ski Team.
