This past Sunday the Mad-City Ski Team competed at the Mercury Open Tournament in Janesville, WI with 12 other teams. The tournament provides a great warm-up for the upcoming Wisconsin State Tournament that occurs July 21-24.
Mad-City skied first on Sunday which meant the team needed to arrive at the show site by 5am which meant many of us woke up sometime between 3am and 3:30am to make it there on time. (For me at least, that is a time that I’m usually falling asleep, not waking up.)
The team took 3rd at the tournament, placing behind the Rock Aqua Jays (from Janesville who took 1st Place) and the Wonder Lake Ski Team (from Wonder Lake, IL who took 2nd and was last year’s National Champion).
As a whole, the team was very happy with our skiing at the tournament and we’ll be ready for the state tournament in a few weeks.
