Josefin Hirst of Florida won the inaugural Sportsinsurance.com Queen's Cup women's slalom tournament at Little Mountain Lakes in Maiden, N.C., on Sunday, defeating surprise finalist Joy Kelley in the head-to-head final.
Kelley outlasted No. 1 seed Chelsea Mills in the semifinals, but had a fluke early fall on her opening pass in the final, leaving Hirst with an easy path to the title. It was the fourth round of the day for both after two rounds of qualifying Saturday.
Kelley, a Women 5 skier from Tennessee, entered the Sweet 16 as the No. 4 seed. Hirst, a Women 2 skier, was the No. 2 seed.
Jennifer LaPoint finished third, Mills was fourth and Lori Krueger fifth.
The Queen's Cup, promoted by area Nautique dealer Race City Marine of Mooresville, N.C., drew 24 entrants from across the nation and Canada, and saw three records fall during Saturday's qualifying. Legendary Leeza Harrison, skiing in her second tournament since moving into Women 7, broke the division record in the first round with four at 35 off. She ran 3.5 at 35 in the second round, which also would have broken the record.
Canadians Maureen Mosteller and Rhonda Powell played tug-of-war with their nation's Women 5 record. Powell ran 2.5 at 35 and Mosteller got 3 at 35. Both scores topped the division record in Canada.
The Queen's Cup had a $12,000 purse in cash and prizes, and attracted some 40 sponsors. -- Marjo Rankin

I've been riding this ski for about 2 weeks now. Yesterday, out of curiosity, I put together my trusty old 9800 which I was riding prior to trying the Rev 6. It took just 8 buoys to get back in the boat and set up the Rev 6 again. The difference was insane! I highly recommend you try this ski! Order below with FREE SHIPPING in the USA!

INTRODUCING MY NEWEST TOWROPE!
If you are suffering from elbow problems, you need the Anti Roll Handle! What is an Anti Roll Handle? Instead of the rope entering the center of the handle allowing the handle to twist, a rope goes around each side of the handle which creates stability and prevents the twisting motion that causes elbow problems. I used to have elbow problems but have long forgotten about them due to this handle. Available in most diameters and lengths. We have found the larger diameter handles help prevent/cure elbow problems. Available in your choice of colors. Buy one today and make the pain go away! $129.99 with FREE SHIPPING!
