Phil Soven Wins MasterCraft Pro Wakeboard Tour Monroe

Monroe, WA.– Thousands of spectators flocked to the shores of Lake Tye to witness the final day of competition at the MasterCraft Pro Wakeboard Tour Monroe presented by Rockstar. Top Notch performances were registered by a slew of athletes, with Phil Soven ultimately prevailing in the Men’s Pro division and Tony Iacconi in the Overton’s Junior Pro Series.

Soven fought off strong runs from Rusty Malinoski and Mike Dowdy by going just a tad bigger off the X-Star’s wake than the rest of the field. His winning run was equal parts massive aerials, perfectly executed rotations and on-point rail riding.

“A lot of the guys showed up in top form today so I’m just happy to walk away with a win,” said Soven. “I was able to make the most of the conditions and feed off the crowd’s energy and that really helped me put together a good run in the finals.”

The Junior Pro finals also saw a heated final round. Iacconi was able to walk away victorious by leveraging a well rounded run to fend off valiant efforts from Noah Flegel and Massi Piffaretti who joined him on the podium.

Following the finals, fans were privy to one of the most thrilling specialty events in wakeboarding, the Polaroid Action Big Air Contest. Taking the spoils was Adam Errington who boosted a huge backside 180 sparking a roar of excitement from the crowd.
