In the U18 girls event, Alisa Clydesdale grabbed gold by posting a score of 45, notching her second medal of the day after winning silver in the wakeboarding event earlier in the day.

The sister duo of Hannah and Hailey Doucette battled it out for silver, with Hannah grabbing second-place honours and Hailey finishing in third.

The U14 boys event saw Zakk Harman take his second gold of the games, following his wakeboard triumph earlier in the day. Brothers Noah and Caleb Woollends grabbed silver and bronze, respectively. Noah had won bronze in the wakeboard event.

Sera Watson’s score of 45 was good for gold in the U14 wakeskate event. Grace McNaul finished second with a score of 26.

The athletes are back in the water Saturday for jump and trick events.
