Zoe named as Co-Captain

Our amazing Zoe Crawford is achieving even greater heights! Currently in Italy representing New Zealand in the Life Saving World Championships, Zoe has just been announced as C0-Captain of the New Zealand Junior Black Fins!

Mairangi Bay’s Zoe, along with Waikanae’s Lachie Falloon are leading the team against the world’s best junior surf lifesavers in the pool and on the beach. The event started on 27 September.

In a press release by Surf Life Saving New Zealand, World Championships junior campaign lead Zac Franich says the decision to appoint Zoe and Lachie was both easy and tough.

“We have a strong team of individuals who are all leaders in their own right, as a coach that’s a blessing but it also makes it a tough decision to make when you have so many options,” he says.

“But when it came to choosing Zoe and Lachie it was also an easy one as they are both very strong in their individual disciplines at the pool and the beach but definitely stand up as big time team players.  “And that’s exactly what we need in Italy.”

Well done, yet again, Zoe!
