  • 0

The 24th annual Longport Women’s Lifeguard Invitational, scheduled for Tuesday, was postponed to 6:30 p.m. Wednesday due to high winds, rough surf and a strong current expected to build throughout the day.

The event will be held at the 31st Avenue beach, near the Longport lifeguard house at 33rd Avenue.

The female guards of the South Jersey Lifeguard Chiefs Association will compete in the doubles row, the swim, the paddleboard race, the singles row and the four-person surf dash.

Longport dominated the event last year with 31 points to win the team title. Ventnor finished second with 12 points. Ocean City also had 12 points, but Ventnor took second place on the tiebreaker of a higher finish in the doubles-row.

Wildwood Crest won the team title in 2019. The event wasn’t held in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
