Zane Booth was a golden boy at the California Surf Lifesaving Association Regional Junior Lifeguards Championships at Silver Strand State Beach in Coronado last weekend.

Booth, 16, won four gold medals and two silvers competing in the Under-19 age division. The competition featured top junior lifeguards from throughout Southern California.

He took first place in the Ironman, rescue board race, paddle rescue and rescue relay and finished second in the distance swim and rescue swim relay.

Booth, a junior at Dos Pueblos High, is a City of Santa Barbara Lifeguard and an instructor's aide with the city's Junior Lifeguards Program at East Beach.

He's been training the last four summers with the junior guards program as well with top paddlers and lifesaving athletes from Santa Barbara, Ventura and Oxnard.

Earlier this summer, Booth won the 17-Under Division title at the Jay Moriarty Memorial 12-Mile Paddle Race in Capitola. His time was 2 hours, 1 minute, 30 seconds.

His goal is to make the USA Youth National Team and travel to New Zealand this fall and Australia in 2018 to compete in the World Lifesaving Championships.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
