2016 Collegiate Wakeboard Nationals

This past weekend, 16 teams descended on Gulf Shores, Alabama and made camp at the Flora-Bama Beach Club for the 2016 Collegiate Wakeboard Nationals. This diverse collection of teams has been training non stop since the end of Nationals last year, and they were prepared to throw down again this year. Most of the teams involved have already had a chance to ride at the competition site due to a Regional Qualifier earlier this year. The competition was fierce, the bag of tricks was deep, and after 4 days of absolute pandemonium a champion was crowned. The Florida Gators won the 2016 title, as well as the 2015, with Arizona State coming in 2nd and Michigan State rounding out the top 3.

While none of the MBC teams finished in the top 5, Mississippi State charged into the top 10 and claimed the 8th spot in the country. The Rebels, behind a small, resilient team, fell from their coveted 5th spot all the way to 12th. Mississippi State’s Dale Milican brought home a 2nd place finish in the wakeskate division, and the Bulldog’s also took the 3rd place spot in women’s A behind Carrie Lynn McCormick’s powerful performance. “I’m just really proud of how many people we go to show up to the competition, it was rough for a school week,” said Danny Flanigan, the team’s president. “We are lucky to have such devoted team members.” Below are the full results from the weekend just in case you missed the live stream on Alliance Wake!
