WRIGHTSVILLE BEACH, NC (WECT) - The Wrightsville Beach Ocean Rescue Team held lifeguard tryouts Saturday.

Over 30 people participated, but only a handful of those trying out will make it and join the staff.

In addition to several swimming drills, the participants also had to go through interviews with head lifeguard Dave Baker.

Wrightsville Beach will announce the new team members the first Monday in May.
