Phil Soven Wins MasterCraft Pro Wakeboard Tour Lathrop
Amber Wing Claims Victory in Women’s Pro Division
Lathrop, CA.– Thousands of fans flocked the shores of Mossdale Quarry Lakes to watch the world’s top wakeboarders battle it out during the final day of the MasterCraft Pro Wakeboard Tour presented by Rockstar in Lathrop. Claiming gold in the Golden State were Phil Soven in the Men’s Pro division, Amber Wing in the Women’s Pro and Tony Iacconi in the Overton’s Junior Pro Series.
Soven laid down near flawless aerials and technical rail maneuvers to boost his way to first place in the six man finals heat. Joining Soven on the podium were Austin Hair and Dean Smith who both put in excellent final round performances.
“There was so much great riding today, I’m just stoked to come away with a win,” said Soven. “This was a nice venue to host a Pro Tour event and now I can’t wait for the next stop in Monroe in a couple weeks!”
Wing, who squeaked out a narrow victory over local rider Melissa Marquardt, displayed stylish riding throughout the entire event to earn top honors. Dallas Friday also displayed stellar riding to claim the final podium spot.
The Overton’s Junior Pro Series riders showed the future of the sport is in good hands. Leaning on a dominating final round performance, Tony Iacconi took the division’s top spot over Cory Teunissen and Gordon Harrison.
Following the final rounds of action, fans enjoyed the Polaroid Action Big-Air Contest. The event featured top athletes performing exciting and innovative tricks that aren’t typically attempted in a traditional contest setting. Riding behind the MasterCraft X-Star, Dean Smith won the specialty event busting a huge backside 720.
