Christ Church surfers have retained the Champion School Trophy for the Metro Zone 4 Competition of the WA Schools Titles – for the fourth year in a row.
In large, growing swell conditions at Trigg Beach late last week, Christ Church won four out of the three division finals.
In the Junior Bodyboarding category, the School’s top duo of Sam Harding and Ryan Thomas won the final against fellow Christ Church surfers Ethan Duffy and Josh Foster.
Christ Church’s West Love and Julian Lester surfed well throughout the competition defeating Irene McCormack Catholic College during the final of the Senior Bodyboarding category.
School Surfing Captain Jack Salom and Finn Kelly also performed well defeating fellow Christ Church surfers Solomon Backshall and Ben Evans.
“It was the boys’ cumulative success that enabled them to take out the Champion School Trophy,” said Teacher in Charge of Surfing, Mr Simon Hunn.
“Next week is the state finals of the WA Schools Competition at Trigg Beach where our surfers will come up against the other three metro zone winners and the winning teams in each of the five regional zones.”
It will be an exciting competition to watch and all families and friends are encouraged to come down and cheer the boys on.
