orewa slsc takes home nz pool titles & trophies
Surf Life Saving NZ Pool Rescue Champs were held in Auckland at the Sir Owen Glenn National Aquaitic Centre from Friday 12 - Sunday 14 October 2018.
Orewa Surf Life Saving Club (SLSC) was the club who dominated the event and took the top spot with a total of 265 points across both the Paul Kent Trophy and Masters category. They broke nine of the 29 records broken across a variety of events and age groups during the weekend.
All athletes, from junior to masters, showed the techniques they have honed over the winter and will be putting them to good use on the beach as lifeguards and junior surf members this season.
Orewa SLSC coach, Zac Franich, said: “We’re blown away with how our athletes performed this weekend. It sounds cliché, but it really was a team effort, spearheaded by some incredible performances from our juniors.”
