The Aquanuts competed at the 40th Division 1 Show Ski National Tournament in Janesville, placing third in Division 1.
This year 14 teams from around the USA came to show off their talents. The Aquanut 2014 show theme of “Land of the Lost Nut”, combined the humor of Aquanut Labs and time machine travel back to the 1970s.
Show director David Thornton (Twin Lakes, WI) led the Aquanut Ladies to National Championship in Ballet for the 5th year running with a 26 girl ballet line. Swivel Star Kendall Krieger (Lake Bluff, IL) placed first in the individual swivel competition held on Friday. Kendall also won the Willa Cook Award for the most valuable female skier. Aquanut Ladies were in top form with their incredible quick-pick ballet line with 29 girls skiing in unison, which consistently awes the crowd. The Back Barefoot Circle Act, performed by Kailey Koehler (Lake Geneva, WI), #3 world ranked barefooter, sister Ariana Koehler (Lake Geneva, WI), and Collin Barber (Ingleside, IL), was another crowd pleasing act.
The team also performed wake board, trick ski acts, around the boat, doubles, jump acts, prefabricated pyramids, and grand pyramids to round out their show.
Shows are Wednesday and Saturdays at 6 pm on Lake Mary (Lance Park) in Twin Lakes.
