Abby's first water skiing competition ever was last week at the Adaptive National. She competed in trick as an MP3 and set a new record at 900 points. Although I know she was holding back with that score it earned her the record, gold medal, and a position on Team USA for the 23 Worlds that will be in Elk Grove CA.
Abby currently resides in AZ where she attends the University of Arizona on a full ride scholarship playing basketball. She has been asked to compete in Track and Field events also. But Abby realizes that spreading herself to thin with all of her athletic ability would really affect her grades while she is working on becoming a nurse. Abby started skiing after she became paralyzed in 7 th grade with a group named Ability First Sports out of Chico CA.

Abby has spent a lot of time behind my boat as a slalom skier at our high altitude lakes and only tried trick skiing at the end of the 21 season. She loved trick and has continued with it. Her coaches former Olympic Champion and coach Matt Oberholtz, current world record holder Conner along with Derrick and Carrie have all played a tremendous roll in her success. Abby knows no limits because of these coaches and her Dad. Abby is originally from Susanville CA and still spends her summers there. Abby's basketball coaches at the UofA allowed her time off of practice to travel to the Adaptive Nationals. Wish Abby and the UofA basketball team good luck this season and cheer her on at the 2023 World Games.

Sorry this is the only picture I could load.
