The 37th Annual Cape Cod Livesaving Competition was held last Wednesday at Nauset Beach. The lifeguarding competition is held each year as an opportunity for the lifesavers of Cape Cod to show off their skills as well as keep those skills sharp. As is often the case, a UMass swimmer was leading the way, this time it was incoming freshman Ryan Bobianski, who for the second year in a row took the Ironman title as well as a first place finish in the co-ed run paddle to lead the home Nauset Beach team to victory.
Bobianski joins Russ Yarworth's squad in 2011-12 as an IMer and fly specialist. A native of East Longmeadow, he owns five individual high school records and is the 2011 Mass. Division 2 State Champion in the 200 IM.
