CRONULLA BEACH, SYDNEY (Sunday, 5 December 2021): The Woolworths Surfer Groms Comps at Cronulla finished with a bang today as the younger event divisions wrapped up in messy two-foot surf.
Jaggar Phillips (Maroubra) claimed his second Woolworths Surfer Groms Comps title of the year, taking out the Under-12 Boys final. Phillips hammered out an array of turns on his way to the top-spot, posting a decent 12.57 two-wave hear total. Phillips scored the win over fellow event standouts Locana Cullen, Banjo Harvey and Jax Goode.
Lucy Darragh (Werri Beach) continued her tear through the Woolworths Surfer Groms Comp series, taking the Under-12 Girls final, her third division win of the year. Darragh found a handful of punchy right and lefthand peaks in her final to finish with a respectable 12.83 two-wave heat total.

Close to 80 competitors entered the event.
