Lennox All Girls

The All Girls Surfriders have had an awesome couple of weeks. Last week saw the Mid North Coast Girls Surfriders and Tweed Coast Girls join us for a tag team event at our local Lennox break. This was a huge amount of fun and a big success. This week followed on with our August club round at Lennox Beachies. The weather was crystal clear sunshine; waves were very small and peeling around the coast.

We were fortunate enough to be able to run on two banks. Results for the August club round are:

Longboards :1 Roisin Carolan 2 Carol Stevenson 3 Maz Pentecost 4 Jan Webster 5 Marg Bryant. 1st Div: Roisin Carolan 2 Vic Marano 3 Isabel Mayo 4 Jane Tranberg. 2nd Div: 1 Ebony Santamaria 2 Alice Mc Donald 3rd Div: Mahlia Carr 2 Grace Tetley 3 Lily Lewis 4 Georgia Laddin. JNR BEG: 1 Jess Mills 2 Bella Armstrong 3 Shaylla Young 4 Jasmine Sloane. SNR BEG 1 Christina Dunn 2 Marika Illic 3 Jules Galloway 4 Sonia Acelet.

Well done to everyone who surfed and see you next month.
