While the weather outside was cold, things were heating up indoors at HBF Stadium as more than 150 athletes took to the pool for the 2022 WA Pool Rescue Championships last weekend.
Over two days of competition, with records broken and standout performances on show, it was Sorrento Surf Life Saving Club that was crowned 2022 Champion Club for the second year running.
Open female athlete Chalise Pratt (Sorrento) made a great comeback to racing taking home five gold medals and a new state record for the Open Female 200m Super Lifesaver event, while Trigg Island’s Phoebe Ashworth also shone, with seven gold across the U19 and Open divisions.
In the Open Male events, Trigg Island’s Harrison Hynes was on a roll, pocketing eight gold medals across the weekend, only beaten by Secret Harbour’s David McCarron, who took gold in the Open Male 200m Super Lifesaver event. Sorrento’s Kelton Rothnie also had a successful weekend in the pool.
Some of our younger competitors, like U14 Trigg Island athletes Eleanor Flowers and Kate Rigoll managed to scoop the pool in their respective age group with dominating performances. Likewise, U15’s Declan Hewlett (Mullaloo) and Thomas Dreverman (Fremantle) were standouts, dominating the events available to them.
The weekend’s highlight was undoubtedly the enthusiasm of the Nipper age groups, who came with smiling faces, eager to be part of the Pool Rescue action.
Rounding out the podium was Secret Harbour in 2nd and Trigg Island SLSC coming in 3rd with 300 points.
