Carter a national skiing champ


Brie Carter of Farragut won the Girls 2 competition at U.S. National Championships (pictured left) among some of the best middle school skiers in the nation, while tying the national record with three buoys at 38 feet off the towline.

Also winning her second national title, Carter reigned supreme at the West Palm Beach, Fla. national showdown last month among 800 skiers from all across the country.

Brie, an eighth-grader at Cedar Bluff Middle School, said, I always had a heart for skiing ... although I often asked [Chris Carter, her father and coach] to push me.

I was very fortunate to train with Chris Parrish one weekend, the top pro in the world, she added. I hope to be able to do more with him. I also got to compete on the pro waterski tour and be on the dock with the best pro women in the world.


Other Knox County skiers competing included Kara McIntyre, third overall and second in slalom, second in trick and fourth in jump.

Bries sister, Caylee, took eighth in slalom.
