It will be a North and South surf life saving battle

SURF LIFE SAVING: Tannum Sands' senior and junior athletes will play an important role to retain the trophy in the Surf Life Saving Wide Bay Capricorn North v South Teams Challenge which starts tomorrow morning in Agnes Water.

Tannum Sands, Emu Park and Yeppoon Surf Life Saving Clubs make up the North team which take on the best from Bundaberg, Agnes Water, Elliot Heads and Moore Park.

TSSLSC head coach John Andrews said competition will be close and hopes the North team will continue its dominance.

"North have won the trophy consistently and there is never much between the two teams,” Andrews said.

The juniors consist of under-11, U12, U13 and U14 age groups while the seniors are made up of U15 and U17's.

"The best five in each age group got selected to be in the North team and we have Reghan Skerman and Finn Bryant as the only ones from Tannum Sands for the boy's U17 team,” Andrews said.

The other senior competitors from Tannum Sands include Lachlan Blake, Tanna Hayward-Gill in the U15 boys and Mitch Haigh in U17 boys.

The U17 girls team is made up of locals Sidney Blake, Meg Larson and Olivia Jenner.

Three of the five clubs in each of the U11, U12 and U13 boys teams are Tannum Sands while the girl's U12 team are all from Tannum Sands.

"The U11 boy's team are the state champions and I'm sure that they will continue their good form in this event,” Andrews said.

There are seven teams events and they are surf, board, cameron relays, wade relays, beach flags, beach relays and an all-age relay.

Points are accumulated throughout the day and the club with the most points wins the challenge.
