The San Juan Hills High School surf team became three-time state champions with their win at the Scholastic Surf Series Section B State Championships, May 16 to 18 at San Onofre State Park, Church Beach.
The team distinguished themselves from among 14 inland schools in their section, turning in a team performance SSS Competition Director Carolyn Krammer called “excellent” and winning three of five divisions—Men’s Longboard, Women’s Longboard and Coed Bodyboard.
“San Juan Hills has a really great bunch of surfers,” Krammer said. “And they are really nice kids as well. Their coach Nate Roberts does a fantastic job with the team and it’s reflected in the kids’ attitudes and sportsmanship. If we gave an award for the team with the best sportsmanship, it would go to San Juan Hills, for sure.”
