It was a Queensland affair at this weekend’s 2018 National Pool Championships with the Queensland Cyclones winning the Interstates, Currumbin Vikings SLSC club taking to the Opens and in the Masters, Tweed Heads & Coolangatta SLSC came home first.
In an upset at the Interstates Queensland has retained the Alan Whelpton Shield on point score after the WA Suns over took the NSW State taking third place and WA seizing second place.
In the Opens Currumbin Beach Vikings SLSC took out first place on 441 points, followed by Maroochydore SLC on 333 and Terrigal SLSC rounding up third place with 218 points.
The Masters crown was claimed by Tweed Heads & Coolangatta SLSC with 156 points, South Australia’s West Beach SLSC came in second, pipped by only one point with 155 and in third place it was Terrigal SLSC.
Stuart Hogben Queensland Sport Manger said that from Queensland point of view it was amazing that all categories were taken out by Queensland clubs and the Queensland team.
It is back to back wins and has helped us retain the Alan Whelpton trophy.
It’s always a good tight competition between Queensland and News South Wales but this year Western Australia has really thrown the gauntlet down.
It’s a great result for not only our athletes here today but all our State Teams.
All Life Saving eyes will now turn to the World Life Saving Championships to be hosted in Adelaide this November.
