WBOR Takes Third at National Championships

DSC_0264aWrightsville Beach lifeguards claimed third place in their division at the 2014 Nautica United States Lifesaving Association (USLA) National Lifeguard Championships this past week! See Photos. A team of 15 Wrightsville Beach lifeguards traveled to Virginia Beach, VA to compete against over 550 of the best lifeguards from across the country. The team competed against 45 other beaches, some of which had as many as 90 competition team members. The small but mighty Wrightsville Beach finished in the top 10 overall and brought home the third place trophy in the Small Beach division, finishing behind strong teams from Smith Point, NY and Destin, FL. Full Results

Celebrating 50 years of lifesaving, the USLA National Lifeguard Championships will air nationwide on the Universal Sports Network on Monday, September 15 at 8:00pm.

Congrats to all the competitors and thank you to all of our supporters in the community without whom this accomplishment would not have been possible!
