What female senior made a huge impact on their team this past year? Maybe they posted impressive scores, helped grow their team, or did something else to leave a positive lasting effect for the MCWSA!

Josie Nason- WMU
WMU really is not going to be the same without Josie next year. As our insta says, she is our fly jumping, slalom crashing, finger pancake making, bundle of energy!January 20, 2020 at 8:55 pm #53432Jessica NietersParticipant
Maggie Peplow- Miami of Ohio
She is a skier who puts her team team first. She has become a huge role model for the Purdue captains and the whole Midwest. It is hard not to be excited about skiing when you are around Maggie because she has a way of calming your nerves and reminding you that you are ultimately skiing to have fun.January 26, 2020 at 2:31 am #53470Andrew DicksParticipant
Margaret “Swaggie” Becker – Michigan
Swaggie was technically our Vice President this past year, but was effectively the acting President, VP, Captain, Secretary, and Marketing Chair, along with being one of our biggest assets on the water. Michigan water skiing came first, second, and third on her priorities list because she loves the team and the sport so much. Nobody came close to matching her dedication to improving and growing our team. Last winter, while she was studying abroad in Madrid, she stayed up all night rewriting our team constitution. There’s nobody that deserves this award more.
I could go on and on about stuff that she did behind the scenes to make sure our team functioned correctly, but what she did on the water might be more impressive. Swaggie joined the team at the end of freshman year and instantly became a legend for getting up on a trick ski on her first try. Since then, she has grown into a great all-around skier. Going into this season, she knew that she needed to step up from being mainly a trick asset to a 3-event leader. She worked hard all summer, skiing almost every day with the goal in mind of making nationals. As it turned out, her hard work paid off and her 3-event scores helped us qualify outright. And as if that wasn’t enough, she went out to Sacramento and posted a 3-event PB at Nationals with scores of 2 @ 28mph, 460 pts, and 42 feet!
All her hard work paid off and we couldn’t be prouder. Nobody put more time and effort into water skiing over the past year than she did, but all that work was worth it in the end. The team has to replace a lot of seniors this coming year, but filling the hole that Swaggie is leaving will be impossible.
