Abbie Skeen just started the 7th Grade at Thomas Hart Academy; but she has been waterskiing since she was 4 and competing since she was 6. This summer she became a South Carolina Waterskiing Champion.

Abbie took first place in her age group in both slalom and trick skiing at the South Carolina Waterski Championship in Greenwood, SC.

That performance gave Abbie the opportunity to compete in the USA Waterski Southern Region Competition in Tuscaloosa, AL where she took 13th place in slalom and 8th place in trick skiing.

Abbie’s scores in Tuscaloosa qualified her to compete in trick skiing at the USA Waterski National Tournament.

Go Abbie! Go Hornets!
