ORLANDO, Fla. Eleven-year-old Alpharetta resident and Northwestern Middle School sixth-grader Allie Maloney won the 2013 National Kneeboard Championship earlier this fall. Held at the Orlando Watersports Complex in Florida, the championship was hosted by the American Kneeboard Association, which is a division of USA Water Ski, the national governing body for water skiing.

Maloney competes in the junior girls' division made up of girls 12 and under. Competitions have two events: slalom and tricks. In the slalom event, competitors must kneeboard through a slalom course made up of six buoys. Upon the successful completion of the course, the boat speed is increased 2 miles per hour starting at 14 mph until the boat speed reaches 20 mph for each successful pass.

In the trick event, each competitor has two 20-second trick runs where they perform various approved tricks worth points based on difficulty. Maloney swept both slalom and trick titles.

This was her third year competing at the national kneeboarding competition and her second national championship title.

Maloney's trainers are former Alpharetta residents, David, Cori and Joey Deutsch. Both Cori and Joey are former national champions who were trained by their father David.

In addition to kneeboarding, Maloney is an experienced wakeboarder, slalom skier and wakesurfer. She was also a member of the Cambridge Bears sixth-grade feeder team cheer squad.
