Five selected for pool rescue team
Five members of Umina Surf Life Saving Club have been named to the 2018 Interstate Pool Rescue Team who will travel to South Australia this August for the annual representative competition.
Umina will be well represented with five athletes - Jemma Smith, Rachel Wood, Kayla Holmes, Lachlan Braddish and Blake Hessel - who won nearly 60 medals between them at the NSW Titles.
The 22-strong team was selected off the back of the State Championships which were held at the Peninsula Leisure Centre from July 14-15.
"Ultimately, a team was chosen that blends a mixture of youth and experience with the athletes rewarded for strong performances over a period of time," said SLS NSW surf sports officer Ms Chiara Nowland.
