The Crivitz Ski Cats competed at the 52nd annual Wisconsin State Show Ski Championships on Saturday, July 21 on Lake Wazeecha in Wisconsin Rapids. The team was judged on their ability to put 13 acts on the water within a 60 minute time limit, and was scored on categories of flow, execution, difficulty, spectator appeal, announcing/audio presentation, tow boat driving, pick-up boat driving, costumes/makeup, dock/equipment, and showmanship. The Cats brought home a 5th place finish within a very competitive Division 2, with the Shawano Ski Sharks earning top honors as 2018 Division 2 State Champs.
