Kenny helps Canecutters to victory in Super Surf Teams League

SURF LIFESAVING: Alexandra Headland ironman Jett Kenny says there “wasn’t really a doubt” for his Queensland Country team leading into the first event of the Super Surf Teams League, which they won on Saturday.

The 25-year-old was among the stars for the outfit, which posted 133 points, to finish 23 points ahead of Scarborough.

Northern Beaches were third and the Sunshine Coast Marlins were fourth among 13 teams in the first of three events in the inaugural league.

But it was the eight-member Queensland Country unit which reigned supreme at Bulli.

“There wasn’t really a doubt coming into today,” Kenny said on Saturday.

“We were pretty confident in our team … we’ve got a good team behind us.

“It was good racing … it was hard racing and we did really well.”

The Canecutters team boasts five club members from Alexandra Headland, including Kenny, Rhys Burrows, Eli Halliday, Emma Woods and Lucinda Kelly.

Woods won the women’s ski race while Kenny won the men’s edition.

Woods and Brown won the mixed board relay.

The Marlins won the marquee mixed ocean relay.

Round two will be contested at Surfers Paradise on December 5, again in conjunction with the Nutri-Grain Ironman Series.
