Grace “Kat” Warner might still be in high school, but she has spent most of her life accumulating medals in water skiing.
The Preston Hollow resident and Hockaday student earned another national title recently in the jump division at the 72nd Water Ski National Championships in San Marcos.
Warner also helped the United States win a team title in the 17-and-under division at the Can Am Team Challenge in suburban St. Louis.
She was part of a six-person U.S. team that competed against a Canadian squad.
At the national tournament, Warner landed a 108-foot jump off a 5-foot ramp, behind a boat traveling 31.7 mph, in a 15-18 mph wind.
Jump is one of three divisions in water skiing — with slalom and tricks as the other two. She placed fifth in tricks in her age group and sixth in slalom, giving her a silver medal in the overall standings.
For her performance, Warner received an automatic berth in the Junior Masters Water Ski tournament next May in Pine Mountain, Ga.
Previously, Warner was an overall national champion in 2012, when she also won the jump title. Her younger brother, Ryan, won a championship in his division that same year.
