The Saugeen Shores Lifesaving Club (SSLC) has returned home from the Lifesaving competitions in Leeds, U.K.
Overall the developmental team, of which four members were from the SSLC, placed 5th in the commonwealth festival (there were 9 athletes on the developmental team.)
Canada’s National team placed 4th overall and there were 10 Canadians on that team.
Each of the SSLC athletes beat their own personal best scores, which was a goal for each of them. Natalia Perico also placed 3rd in line throw!
“We want to thank Michael Hundt for his years of coaching that instilled a love of lifesaving sport in these kids and motivated them to not only set goals, but to persevere through challenges so that they could achieve them,” says parent Jane Barrett. “We also thank the other staff at Centennial Pool and SSLC team members who supported, coached and motivated these kids to make practices and train hard. We all appreciate it so much.”
