Lifeguards from Mastic to Montauk gathered at East Hampton Main Beach on Thursday to compete in the annual East Hampton Main Beach Ocean Lifeguard Tournament, a summer tradition that gives the guards a chance to show off their athletic prowess and lifesaving skills in the surf and on the sand.

The powerhouse Smith Point Park ‘A’ team finished first among the eight men’s teams, defending its title from last year, while the East Hampton Town ‘A’ team was first among the five women’s teams. In the men’s competition, Smith Point (61 points) beat out Fire Island (51 points). The East Hampton Town ‘A’ team and Westhampton (also known as the Smith Point ‘B’ team, with guards mostly from Cupsogue Beach) finished tied for third with 46.5 points each.
