Los Angeles County Junior Lifeguards competed for bragging rights in Hermosa Beach on Saturday as part of the annual Judge Taplin Lifeguard Medley Relay. One of the most prestigious events for lifeguards in the country since it first began in 1936, teams compete from all over Southern California.

Junior lifeguards alongside active duty guards tested their strength and endurance in swimming, running, paddling and rescue. The event was part of the weekend's International Surf Festival that included the Dwight Crum Pier-to-Pier Swim, and the Charley Saikley 6-Man Volleyball Tournament
