Small in size, big performance



ALTHOUGH small in numbers Red Rock Nippers put in a big effort in all events at the recent Jetty carnival.

The club congratulates Jasmine Sinclair who performed well in the beach sprints and flags although some very naughty boys were on the boards when she needed one to compete in her race so she missed out.

Word has it that Wade Tallon is the club's new allrounder and a future iron man.

Dylan Tallon got to the finals in the beach sprint and in the finals of the flags. Dylan put in a top effort in his board event as well.

Shannon Merkel-Bell who just missed out on the finals in her flag event put in a top effort.

Kaine Dooley blasted the other competitors and got 4th in his sprint race and 5th in the flag finals.

A very close finish for Hayden Larkin who missed out on the finals of his flag event by only centimetres.

Recovering from a broken leg, Bonnie Birchall put in a top effort in her beach events.

Both Nippers and their parents enjoyed the first carnival of the season and are eagerly looking forward to competing again soon.

Anyone who would like to join this friendly family orientated club in regards to Nippers or Seniors please contact Leane 66491248.

nGEELONG. ? Upcoming surf lifesaving star Jack Hansen hopes to play an integral part in boosting the sport's popularity in Victoria.

The 17-year-old made history last month by winning the inaugural Under-19 Coolangatta Gold on the Gold Coast.

The junior lifesaver from Torquay beat a high quality field and fended off a charge from his more fancied Queensland and northern NSW counterparts.
