Each year a team is selected to receive the award of Collegiate Wakeboard Team of the year. A lot goes into what defines this great award. It isn’t about being number 1 in the nation, or winning every event. It is about teamwork, comradery, and organization. It takes a strong leader as well as a team willing to work together for the greater good of the group.

This year the award goes to a team who was once a mighty force in the college wakeboard world. Due to nature and unforeseen circumstances the team started to fall apart. With the loss of their lake, they competed less and started to break apart.

It took a new President and hard work to bring this team back to the lime light of the top teams. However, the team didn’t come back as it was once before, but stronger, closer and more organized.

Here at Empire Wake we have seen leaps of improvement on all levels of this team.  It has caught out eye and after looking closer into the club we are proud to present the award to the 2012 Collegiate Wakeboard Team of the year to:

Florida State University!

The team will be awarded a trophy and prizes during the College Wakeboard Championships in Las Vegas Nevada.
