Lifeguard Challenge Events

Ankeny YMCA Lifeguards take 1st and 2nd
On Saturday, Feb. 26, the Waukee YMCA hosted the 6th Annual YMCA of Greater Des Moines Lifeguard Challenge event. Teams from each branch that consisted of life guarding staff, competed in 3 different lifeguard skill events or scenarios. The teams also had to show their branch staff spirit and complete a lifeguard skit or synchronize swimming routine. Families, friends, and staff came out to support our Ankeny YMCA lifeguard staff!

The Ankeny YMCA staff took top place finishes in the following events:

Joshua Huang and Nikki Myers took 1st place in the Active Victim event.
Veronica Harty and Shauneica McClish took 2nd in the Back boarding Shallow Water Victim event.
Joshua gets ready for the Active Victim Event as Ankeny staff and families cheer on their teammates showing their team spirit!
