Local surfers compete at interbranch championships
A contingent of local surf life savers competed at Surf Life Saving NSW's Interbranch Championships earlier this month.
All three of the Peninsula's surf life saving clubs had members compete under the Central Coast banner in either the Junior, Youth or Open categories, with members recording a number of top 10 finishes and even picking up medals for their efforts.
Umina had the largest number of competitors for the Peninsula with Ronnie Jordan competing in the Male Under-12's, Davara Marshall the Female Under 14's, Jed Hoyland the Male Under 14's, Poppi Lever the Youth Female and Bailey Johns and Lachlan Braddish in the Open Male.
Ronnie was one of the Peninsula's only medalists, picking up silver in the Board Race.
Bailey was the Peninsula's most successful competitor, earning a gold in the Ski Race and placing fourth in the Board Race and sixth in the Male Ironperson.
Davara also narrowly missed out on a bronze in the Surf Race ending her day in fourth place.
Killcare representatives included Cecilia Brad in the Female Under-12's, Lily Hofer in the Female Under-14's, Natasha Marteene Open Female and Luke Hayter in the Open Male.
Lily rounded out the Peninsula's medalists with a bronze in the Beach Sprint.
All other Killcare members also recorded top 10 placings in their events.
Ocean Beach's Will Adams was the club's sole representative on the team and recorded a sixth place finish in the Youth Male Beach Sprint followed by a fifth in the Beach Flags.
Peninsula lifesavers were also participated in several team events which medaled.
