Regina takes Masters title, extends streak to 2 years

At the 2014 Masters Regina Jaquess suffered a disappointing and surprising defeat, after which, she vowed to come back with a vengeance. Consider that a promise kept.

Jaquess and her ReV 6 led from start-to-finish at the 57th Masters, held this past weekend at Callaway Gardens, to claim her second-straight Women’s slalom title and moving her into a tie with Kristi Overton-Johnson with six career Masters slalom titles.

The win also completes a full two calendar years in which Jaquess is undefeated in professional events, a run that includes multiple victories at the Masters, Malibu Open, California Pro Am and a multitude of others … not to mention a World Slalom title.

As the top seed in the finals, Jaquess got the 5 buoys at 38-feet off she needed to top the score of second-place finisher and fellow Team GOODE member Clementine Lucine (4 buoys at 38-feet off). Manon Costard took third (3.5 buoys at 38-feet off) and Karen Truelove fourth (2.5 buoys at 38-feet off), giving Team GOODE 1st, 2nd, and 4th place finishes.

In Men’s slalom, Team GOODE skiers Thomas Degasperi and Daniel Odvarko tied for 5th, while Nate Smith took home the win.
