AN outstanding season in surf lifesaving competition has earned Yamba Surf Club Star Jacob Lollback a berth in the NSW team for the Interstate series in Sydney next month.

The State team was named following the NSW Interbranch Titles at Fingal Beach, Nelsons Bay last week end where Lollback won the Under-17 board race to maintain his unbeaten record in this event so far this season.

The Interstate Surf Lifesaving Series will be held at at Queenscliff Beach January 23 and 24.

Lollback was competing for the Far North Coast branch team which won back the title of champion country branch from the South Coast branch.

The other Under-17 water competitor selected in the state team was Ken Louis, of Collaroy, who won both the surf race and iron man event at Fingal.

At Queenscliff Lollback will compete in the Under-17 board race, iron man, board rescue and other team events.

Two other Far North Coast team members were selected in the NSW team.

They were former Red Rock SLSC member Scott McCartney, now competing for Cudgen Headland and Lennox Head Under-14 competitor Tanyn Lyndon.

Last season McCartney won the Under-19 board race title at the Australian Championships whilst competing for Red Rock.

The NSW team will be led by Australian open iron man champion Nathan Smith, of Cronulla and will be out to retain the title it won last year after a close battle with Queensland.
