Pair fights for state titles berth
CHAMPION Tannum Sands first aid team Gail Williams and Garry Norris will be eyeing off another state championships campaign when they compete at today's Wide Bay Capricorn Branch Res- cue Titles.
The pair are Tannum Sands Life Saving Club's only represen- tatives at the two-day titles which incorporate first aid, champion lifesaver and champion patrol competition.
Williams and Norris, who have previously won first aid titles at state level, need to beat their counterparts from other branch centres if they are to qualify for the state titles at Broadbeach on the Gold Coast in January.
The pair were in good form at the recent North Australian Surf Lifesaving Championships in Mackay, taking out the title ahead of a strong field of contenders.
Williams said she and Norris had since lifted their efforts an- other degree since the Mackay event and would enter the state ti- tles confident of success.
'I'm confident that we have trained well and fine-tuned our performance from the Northern Australian Titles two weeks ago and that we'll put in a solid effort,' Williams said.
