Lennox Head nippers won four medals at the 2018 NSW Age Surf Life Saving Championships held at Lake Macquarie ten days ago.
The medal haul is being hailed as one of the best ever performances by the club.
‘We’ve actually excelled at this carnival. I would say this has been our best ever State Titles. We’ve had numerous medals in the water and beach, both individual and teams, so we’ve smashed it,’ said Lennox Head-Alstonville SLSC junior activities coordinator Sam Miller.
‘We’re only a small team of 19 competitors but everyone was so excited to be here,’ he said.
Niamh Sharpe is again a state champion after winning the U/11 female board race, defending the title she claimed last season, while Percy Walker was also a gold medal winner in his first ever attempt at the U/9 male beach flags.
Rounding off the medals for the club was Maalik Moston, who took silver in the U/12 board race, and bronze in the ironman.
Fresh from successfully defending its Country Championship title last month, competitors from Cudgen Headland SLSC also has a good weekend.
The club finished 14th overall and left Lake Macquarie with nine medals in their possession.
Rising star Lily O’Sullivan capped off her Nippers career with a sensational performance, earning individual gold medals in the U/14 board race, ironwoman, and surf race events before adding further wins in the board relay and board rescue alongside teammate Olissa Onley.
Onley won two silver medals in her own right.
