The National Collegiate Water Ski Association recently announced
the addition of two top skiers to the team at The University
of Louisiana at Monroe. Tyler McDermeit, of Winter Haven, Florida
has announced his decision to attend ULM as well as Regina Jaquess,
of Santa Rosa Beach, Florida.
Regina Jaquess will be joining her older sister, Renee, when she comes to ULM next fall. Jaquess is USA Water Ski's 2001 Female Athlete of the Year and is known as the world trick champion. "After much consideration, I've decided that the University of Louisiana-Monroe is the best choice for me," said Jaquess.
The University of Louisiana-Monroe has won 16 overall team titles in the 23-year history of the Collegiate Nationals, but last year it finished third behind champion Arizona State and runner-up Louisiana-Lafayette.
"The University of Louisiana at Monroe is excited about the signing of these two extremely talented young people. We know they will add a great deal to our university as well as our water ski program", said Dean of Student Affairs, Charles McDonald.
