City Lifeguards Place 2nd at State Competition
A team of four lifeguards – Kate Krause, Madi Smith, Aaron Duke and Hunter Boyd – represented the City of Georgetown as Team Code Red Cross at the State Lifeguard Competition held in Corpus Christi on July 24. These individuals represented the City in a fantastic showing which garnered a second overall finish, coming in only behind Kerrville. Competition was tough as the City of Georgetown faced 12 strong teams from the Woodlands, Frisco, McKinney, Cedar Park, Conroe, Schlitterbahn and Summerland.
Teams competed in four different areas: CPR, First Aid, Spinal Scenario and a group scenario.
To get to the state competition the team had to qualify by placing 1st – 3rd overall in one of the four regional competitions. Regional competitions typically have anywhere from 12-35 teams compete. The City of Georgetown Code Red Cross team came in 1st place overall at the Central Texas Lifeguard Competition held in New Braunfels on July 15 to earn their spot at the state competition.
Congratulations to these four individuals on a job well done!
