A TEAM of young Mordialloc beach life savers won gold at the Australian Surf Life Saving Championships at Scarborough last weekend.
The Mordialloc Life Saving Club’s under 14/15 mixed beach relay team claimed gold on Saturday. It was the first gold medal won by a Victorian club on the day.
The winning team featured Swayde Cole, Trinity Barrow, Archie Minster, and Harrison Scurrah. Cole also won gold in the under 15 girls beach flags event on Sunday.
Harrison Scurrah said that being a national champion is hard to believe. “I’m still pinching myself that I’m an Australian champion – it’s the most euphoric, mind blowing, awesome feeling and something my teammates and I will share for the rest of our lives,” he said. “I am really proud of the team, we have trained extremely hard all year and have listened and taken on board all the advice and critiquing from our coaches, as well as connecting as a team on and off the sand.”
Scurrah won bronze in the under 15 boys beach flags event. Minster and Scurrah also joined Dylan Palmer and Eamon Tarr to take out third place in the under 14/15 boys beach relay.
