Albany’s small but fierce team of Nippers took to Trigg Beach to compete in the Nipper State Championships, and they didn’t disappoint. Jesiah (U13) and Malachai (U11) Bresanello, and Kate Levett (U10), showed off their skills in the Ironman/Ironwoman and board events.

Despite the chilly weather, the Nippers put up a valiant effort, with all three of them qualifying for the Ironman/Ironwoman and Board events. Their fierce spirit and determination were evident throughout the competition, with Jesiah displaying a strong finish despite being unable to find a clear line in the final. Malachai and Kate missed out on the boards, but all three Nippers represented ASLSC proudly, even if one official needed to check which club our cap belonged to!

The performance at the Nipper State Championships was a demonstration of the dedication and hard work that these young athletes have put in. The Albany Surf Life Saving Club and community are proud of their achievements, and we can’t wait to see what the future holds for these fierce Nippers. Congratulations to the Albany team for their impressive showing at the Nipper State Championships- let’s aim for an even bigger presence in Perth next year!!
