ULM finished with an overall score of 12,830, over 400 points more than second place finisher UL-Lafayette.

ULM seemed to dominate, sweeping team wins in the men’s events of slalom, trick and jump.

The women’s team did its part in scoring first place finishes in slalom and trick and scoring a second place finish in jump.

Treina Landrum, who coaches the water ski team, said that water ski is nearly year-round.

“A lot of effort and energy goes into it, so it’s great for the payoff,” Landrum said.

Emilia Hoikkanen, who serves as one of the captains of the water ski team, echoed Landrum’s statements.

“Hard work paid off, and it’s an amazing feeling,” Hoikkanen said.
