Outstanding performances

SORRENTO Surf Life Saving Club was strongly represented at last month�s Australian Surf Life Saving Championships in Queensland.

�Our young up-and-coming athletes performed exceptionally well against the best in Australia,� club marketing director Christine Cougan said.

�Our under-15 rescue and resuscitation team just missed out on the gold on countback but came away with a silver, making all the hard work and training definitely worth it.�

Open beach sprinter Jackson Symonds won silver before backing it up as part of the club�s open relay team, running with Tom Hodgkins, Paul Kappeler and Sam Deans to come away with bronze.

The under-19 doubles team of Nick Pond and Brett Cassidy won a gold medal and Jack Merson won bronze in the under-17 short board competition.

The club�s masters athletes came home with one gold, three silver and one bronze.
