One Spartan student switches from the battlefield into the water. Malcolm Wilkie is an incoming freshmen at HHHS. He was afforded the opportunity to compete in the International Surf Rescue Challenge 2015. This challenge was held in Australia September 5th and 6th. The teams which compete are made up of 16 members.
The members come from a variety of junior lifeguard programs all across an assortment of countries. Countries like the United States, New Zealand, Australia, and so many others competed in this challenge. Each day 10 events will transpire and the scoring is comprised of the team totals, not individuals. So in a challenge like this, in order to ensure success the whole team must perform at an extremely high level.
Mr. Wilkie is one of the youngest competitors at this whole entire competition at the ripe age of 14 years old. “It is awesome to be selected and I didn’t think I would make the team. My strengths are the paddleboard and the ironman events. I heard the competition is very good and I will do my best. I’m super excited to be going,” Said Wilkie.
All of HHHS is proud of Mr. Wilkie and hopes he will keep up the good work.
