Bob Soven Sweeps Jr. Mens

Bob Soven won his fifth straight MasterCraft Pro Wakeboard Tour event Sunday in Reno, Nevada, making him the first rider to ever sweep the Jr. Pro Mens division.

Soven outlasted Mitch Langfield, Daniel Powers and Steel Lafferty in the Jr. Pro Mens finals Sunday, giving him the PWT season sweep. Langfield and Lafferty finished second and third respectively in the season standings.

Soven also won the Jr. Mens division at this year’s Air Nautique WWA Wakeboard National Championships, giving him six top-of-the-podium finishes this season. Dominance runs in the family. Bob’s older brother, Phillip Soven, swept the Pro Mens division of the 2008 MasterCraft Pro Wakeboard Tour.
