Phoebe Link, from Byron Bay SLSC, and Ethan Bayly from Lennox Head-Alstonville SLSC, have been awarded the junior lifesavers of the year for the Far North Coast Branch.

They will go on to represent the Far North Coast Branch at the Surf Lifesaving NSW development program and interview process to determine the state winners in April.

The Cudgen home team came out strongly at the combined championships, and finished on top of the seniors table, with a total of 302 points, followed by Yamba (276), Byron Bay (193) and Lennox Head (149).
