Both women competitors, Chelsea Worland (Women’s A) and Amanda Parker (Women’s B) also qualified for semi-finals.
On day two Central picked up where they left off. Kyler Green (Men’s A) won his quarterfinal while Kolby Blew (Men’s A) advanced to semi-finals. Central swept both championships in Men’s C and D with Roberts and Harris winning their respective classes. Parker took second in Women’s B.
The third and final day cemented the Wildcats National Championship. In Men’s A Green won the class while Blew took third. Men’s B was won by Olson while Worland placed fourth in semi-final heat of Women A. Pat Mahoney rode Wakeskate for the Wildcats and placed third in the final round.
