HARRISTOWN -- Some of the top water skiers from all over Illinois were in Macon county Saturday. The PITS Water Skiers hosted the Illinois state championships at PITS lake in Harristown. Water skiers as young as 10 and as old as 79 took part in the competition.
1993 Eisenhower graduate Freddy Krueger, a former member of the PITS crew, is considered one of the top water skiers in the country. You can watch him next month on the nationally televised MasterCraft Throwdown, which will air August 8th at 1:30 CT on ABC. During the event, Krueger will attempt to break the world ski flying record of 299 feet.
