Professional Water Skier Brian Detrick has moved into the top ten of slalom skiing’s elite. Detrick, an Elk Grove High School graduate, is currently ranked eighth according to International Waterski and Wakeboard Federation (IWWF).
Detrick’s performances have moved him up ten places on the IWWF Elite Skier List since the onset of the 2014 season. The Elite Skier List is determined solely by tournament performances.
“Brian is skiing really well right now,” Paul Crawford, Centurion Boat’s Director of Three Event Skiing said. “I’ve watched Brian develop through the boys and junior’s ranks, always knowing that he had the talent and skills to make it as a top-notch professional slalom skier and he’s there now. Centurion is proud to have a quality skier like Brian using our boat to perform at such an elite level.”
During the 2014 season, Brian Detrick placed second at the Australian Open and at the prestigious Moomba Masters he took third, both scores helped him improve his Elite Skier World ranking.
Coming up this weekend, Detrick will be skiing in the AquaPlex July Record Invitational in Texas.
Grubbs Makes Sac State Baseball Squad
Sacramento State baseball coach Reggie Christiansen announced this week the names of eight incoming freshman players. One of them is Pleasant Grove grad Bronson Grubbs.
“Bronson is a winner, plays the game extremely hard, and also brings flexibility to our roster as he can play all three positions in the middle of the diamond,” Christiansen said.
Grubbs is joined by Rocklin H.S. infielder Sam Curtis, Whitney H.S. infielder P.J. Floyd, Billy Rockefeller of Del Oro and Woodcreek’s Dylan Spezia as incoming Hornets for a program that competed for the first time in the NCAA Division I playoffs last spring.
Christiansen has the task of replacing six seniors from that team, including third baseman Will Soto, an Elk Grove High School graduate. Juniors Rhys Hoskins and Alex Palsha were drafted in June and will forego their final collegiate season.
