Maryland Heights, Mo. (KSDK) - Nearly 100 certified lifeguards suited up Saturday night for the 7th annual YMCA Lifeguard Competition. Organizers say the goal was to increase water safety by honing the lifeguard's skills.
All 16 St. Louis "Y" branches were represented. The competition featured board lifts and CPR challenges among other events.
Lifeguards were divided into teams of four. For the sixth consecutive year, a team from the West St. Louis County "Y" took the top prize.
