More than 100 Ocean Grove Surf Life Saving Club Nippers took part in the Life Saving Victoria junior carnival at Lorne on Sunday 12 February.
It was a big weekend for the Ocean Grove SLSC at Lorne after club senior competitors participated in the Masters Championships, a day earlier on Saturday.
Ocean Grove SLSC Junior Activities Manager, Gavin Mahoney, said the Lorne event was a qualifier for next month’s Junior State Championships in Warrnambool.
“It was a qualifier and lot of the kids performed well in reasonable sized surf at Lorne,” Mahoney said.
“The surf would have been three foot.”
Ocean Grove SLSC Nippers will next compete in the Life Saving Victoria State Junior carnival in bay conditions at Hampton in Melbourne’s south east on Sunday 26 February.
