ST. LOUIS — Canada won the under-17 division at the Can Am water-skiing championships Sunday and nearly upset the U.S. in the under-21 class.

The under-17 team of Taryn Grant of Winnipeg, Chantal Singer of Toronto, Valerie Grenier of St. Isidore, Que., and Jaret Bull of North Bay, Ont., compiled 7,416 points while the U.S. earned 6,922."This tournament has always been a great introduction for our skiers to international competition," said Canadian coach Steve Bush. "The U.S. has the most powerful junior program in the world and to beat their top squad was a thrill for our kids."
