Three brothers, two Dawson County High School graduates and one current student, have formed their own pro/am jet ski racing team and found success during competitions across the country.
DCHS junior Wyatt Hayes was crowned world champion in the junior 13-15 Ski Stock class of the Hidden Trails/Sea Doo Pro Watercross tour last September in what was his first full tour.
The Pro Watercross national tour runs every year from May through September and includes both fresh and salt water courses.
Wyatt and brother Logan, who is a 2014 Dawson grad and currently attends Georgia Tech, along with brother Kyle who is a 2015 Dawson grad and attends Southern Polytechnic State University (Kennesaw State University) are competing now as a team—Three Brothers Racing.
The 2017 Pro Watercross season began with races in Pensacola and Panama City in May. The tour continued to Orlando, Dallas and Hartwell, Georgia. The national finals were held in Charleston, West Virginia the weekend of Aug. 19-20.
At the national finals, Wyatt won the amateur Ski Stock division while Kyle took third in the Pro Sport GP and Logan finished eighth in the Pro Sport GP.
The world finals will be held Nov. 3-5 in Naples.
