Round Rock rocks lifeguard competition
Friday, July 10 two lifeguard teams, the RR Rockin’ River Rats and RR Krebs Creek, represented the City of Round Rock Parks and Recreation at the Central Texas Lifeguard Competition at the UT Swim Center. At the competition teams of lifeguards demonstrated their skills in the certain areas of first aid, CRP and water rescue techniques.
This competition gives the lifeguards a chance to prove the quality of their skills. They did a great job in this close competition where in some case they missed first place by only seconds.
The RR Rockin River Rats placed first in the scanning event, second in the backboard event and forth overall at the competition behind three teams from Schlitterbaun, which is a big accomplishment. The guards on the team are, Leah Anderson, Travis Luth, Ariel Maughan and Zach (Zorro) Rios.
The RR Krebs Creek team placed sixth overall at the competition. The lifeguards on the RR Krebs Creek team are, Luke Berhard, Amy Frame, Alex Herring and Shea Robinson.
Parks and Recreation is proud of the work the lifeguards did to prepare and preform in the competition! Their preformances in this compeition show that they all really know their stuff.
Come enjoy one of our safe outdoor pools.
