Western Suns Finish 3rd at the Surf Lifesaving Interstates Championships

On the 16th of January 2023, teams from NSW, Queensland, Victoria, Western Australia, South Australia, and Tasmania, gathered at Maroubra Beach for the first Interstates Championships since the COVID-19 Pandemic.
The interstate championships, bring the best each state has to offer together, to compete in a collection of events, including Ironman / Ironwoman racing, beach events, ski races, board races, swimming, and relay events.

The beach on the day continued the weather patterns from the weekend, giving the competitors some choppy conditions to battle it out for the coveted title of Interstate Champions.
In the end, it was NSW who took the title home, for a fourth time, with Queensland close behind, followed by Western Australia.

WA’s team had a total of 7 members from Trigg Island be included, a very exciting outcome for our club, and something we are so proud to see, knowing and seeing our athlete’s efforts throughout their training being a key contributor to their success in Maroubra.
