SALTILLO, Miss. (WTVA) - Zac Miller is only nine years old, but he's already a national champion.

Miller, who's in third grade at Saltillo Elementary, recently won the World Wake Association's junior boys beginner division with a score of 82, which was fifteen points higher than the second-place finisher.

The competition took place in Monroe, Washington, which is near Seattle.

Miller began water skiing just before he turned three years old. He's coached by Nathan Strange, a former pro wakeboarder from Tupelo.

Miller has qualified for the World Championships in Cancun, Mexico, in October.
