LAST weekend while storms brewed over most of Queensland and Noosa was abuzz with the crowds that flocked to watch the action of the Nutri-Grain Ironman series on Main Beach, a small group of Noosa surf club’s own ironmen and ironwomen headed south to North Burleigh to compete in round 1 of the Oceans 38 series.

The travellers included U19 Hayley Lemarseny, U17s Hannah Kirby, Jett Kenny and Nick Kirby, U15s Robbie Hayes, Lincoln Dews, Abbey Gordon, Ben Woods, Brooke Wacker and Michael Jedynak, as well as U14 girl Peggy Harris.

All team members put in solid performances both in the water and on the sand, with outstanding skills being displayed in all areas.

The weekend efforts of the competitors further reinforced the state team selectors’ recent announcement to include five from Noosa Heads in the Queensland team.

For the Noosa club the girls achieved some great results, with Lemarseny securing first place in the female surf board race and second in the U19 Ironwoman.

She then joined forces with her dad Jeff to take third place in the Open Mixed double ski race.

The club’s youngest female competitor at the carnival U14 Peggy Harris was on fire over the weekend.

Harris revelled in the blustery conditions convincingly winning the U14 Ironwoman, then followed that with a solid second in the U14 female board race and third in the U14 female surf swim race.

But with energy to burn she then competed up an age group and finished second in the U15 female tube race.

Harris’s success at the carnival is just reward for her countless hours of training in swimming, board paddling and beach running.

With the State and Aussie titles just a couple of months away and round 2 of the Oceans 38 series to be held at Kirra beach on January 29-30, the Noosa competitors are all very keen to perform at their best and got straight back into training on Noosa beach on the Monday afternoon.
