Tahuna Students continue to achieve some awesome results in Surf Lifesaving competitions. Charlotte Underwood- Nicol writes about her efforts in Oceans 15 at Mount Maunganui.
On February 25th a group of 13 St Clair junior lifesavers aged 11–14 went to Mount Maunganui to compete in Oceans 15 (nationals for junior lifesavers under 14).
After a plane ride and a 2.5hr mini bus ride we arrived at our house at the Mount. We were into competing the next day. I had beach flags, sprints and board races that day. I made semi's in my individual events and one final in board the board relay.
The next few days were a whirlwind, over 900 kids, and 100 of them in my age group. The St Clair team returned home with 3 golds, 1 silver and 2 bronze medals.
