Team USA’s strong performance at the Pan-Am Wakeboard Championship was capped off with a win by Daniel Powers (Orlando, Fl). Powers edged out fellow teammate Noah Flegel (Lighthouse Point, Fl) in a very close open men finals.
The two Floridians were accompanied by teammates Jimmy McClure in Junior Men (Ruther Glen, Va), and Zoe Luquette in Girls (Las Vegas, Nv), both making their international competition debut. The two finished second and sixth, respectively.
Powers’ finish has earned him the USA spot at the Pan-Am Games held this year in Toronto, Canada over July 20-23.
