Jemma and Rachel named for State squad
Umina Surf Life Saving members Jemma Smith and Rachel Wood have been named for the Surf Life Saving NSW's 2018 Interstate Championship Open Squad.
"This year's team is a blend of highly experienced competitors and those fast emerging as some of the best new talent in surf sport," said NSW Surf Sports development coordinator Mr Tim Piper.
"Almost every open athlete selected has previously pulled on the blue cap, while some have already had a taste of competition on the world stage," he added.
Mr Piper said the depth of talent in the squad was impressive with selectors confident they have chosen a team with the quality to wrest back the trophy from Queensland.
The Interstate Championships are a highlight of the surf sport representative season.
Each state is allowed to field a maximum of 12 competitors, six male and six female, in the Open and Youth category with four under-17 athletes to be part of the Youth Squad.
