After a hungry and committed showing in the 2006 NSW Interbranch Championships at Crowdy Head last month, Lennox Head/Alstonville surf life saver Tanyn Lyndon has been selected as vice captain of the NSW Surf Life Saving Team. Lyndon will help lead the 47-member squad for the 2007 Surf Life Saving Association Interstate Championships which will be held at Middleton, South Australia this weekend (January 20-21).
The honour was of particular note because Lyndon is only 14 and will be carrying the diplomatic responsibilities for the open-aged team. Lyndon was named the vice captain after a hugely successful championship where he won the Under 15 ironman, board rescue, and ironman team events.
Manlys national ironwoman champion Naomi Flood will captain the squad.
Fellow Lennox Head/Alstonville club member Oliver Hulbert joins Lyndon in the squad.
