DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (AP) — Roughly 1,000 athletes from around the country are in Daytona Beach this weekend to compete in the Nautica USLA Lifeguard Championships. Participants are competing in rescue-based challenges, including the American Ironwoman race, a 950-meter course of paddleboarding, swimming and sprinting. The competition wraps up Saturday. The champion will likely come down to the two favorites — Los Angeles County and Monmouth (New Jersey) County. Monmouth ended L.A. County's 27-year reign as champions last year in Virginia Beach. But L.A. County held nearly a 16-point lead, with 529 total, going into Friday night. The Daytona Beach News-Journal (http://tinyurl.com/p9u7m9b ) reports notable performers included Mallory Kennedy (1st place, American Ironwoman, Board Race and Surf Race, 30-to-34 age group) and Carrie Purdy (1st place, Surf Race, 35-to-39). ___ Information from: Daytona Beach (Fla.)
