Top lifeguards compete in Delaware [photos]

Dozens of lifeguards from around the region were in Rehoboth Beach Wednesday competing in the Mid-Atlantic Lifeguard Championships.

 

They ran, swam, and performed mock rescues along the Rehoboth shores Wednesday. Beach patrol teams from Delaware, Maryland, New Jersey and New York were in the First State for the annual competition.

The top crews won the right to represent the region in the national competition held in California in August.
