WA’s Dan Humble, from Trigg Island SLSC, grabbed third place at the Surf Lifesaving Australia Interstate championships at Newport Beach in Sydney on Thursday.
“It was a tough one to start and a big grind the whole way around in the flat conditions,” Humble said.
WA was placed fourth, with its 80 points gathered by wins in male and female beach sprints.
Scarboro SLSC’s Sophie Watts and Sorrento SLSC’s Jackson Symonds claimed victory over the interstate rivals in both events.
However, NSW took first place overall for the fifth year in a row with 130 points, followed by Queensland (118) and Victoria (85).
NSW Country was fifth with 50 points, then South Australia (47) and the Tasmanian youth team.
