The Surf Life Saving NSW 2020 State Championships wrapped-up on Sunday March 7, at Swansea Belmont, Lake Macquarie, with northern NSW surf sports athletes from Cudgen Headland, and Lennox Head performing strongly.
Lily O’Sullivan, from Cudgen Headland, claimed gold in the U/17 female board rescue, the U/17 surf race, silver in the tube rescue, and she took home two bronze medals in the U/17 board relay and U/17 board race.
It was one of the strongest individual performances in the competition and helped steer her club to claim a haul of sixteen medals.
Lennox Head SLSC also performed strongly, bagging two gold and three silver medals. Jackson Bond and Oliver Sharp were the stand-out performers. They worked well together to win the U/15 male board rescue, then backed up that performance to take the bronze in the U/15 board relay.
