All 10 teams came into the final day of competition with base points from yesterday’s nine division finals, with Team Adkison and Team Harf tied for first place. But with big finishes in today’s finals, Team LaRiche came from behind to win the Air Nautique Wake Games team challenge.

LaRiche advanced to today’s Pro Men’s finals, but was no mach for Australian young gun, Harley Clifford. Clifford took first place in the five-man final, with rookie Bob Soven taking second and JD Webb in third. LaRiche finished in fifth.
Orlando local, Dallas Friday, successfully defended her title at the Air Nautique Wake Games, finishing in first place in the Pro Women’s finals. Friday faced off in a six-woman final, with Nicola Butler and Amber Wing rounding out the top three, respectively.
