This past weekend:
-14 hardworking athletes, 1 dedicated coach, 1 awesome spectator/personal motivator, and 1 yellow lab drove 15 hours to Clemson, SC for the USA Triathlon Collegiate Club National Championship
-8 athletes competed in the event for the first time
-3 athletes did their first ever triathlon with the UConn Tri Club
-The women’s team was ranked 21st, men’s team 29th, and the combined team was ranked 18th in the country. These were all significantly better than last year’s performance.
I’ve spent a lot of this semester caught up in school work and other things, and this was such a great reminder of why we’re all a part of this team, as well as how important it is to take a step back and appreciate the hard work you’ve put in.
It’s hard for me to believe that the team was formed less than 5 years ago, and I can’t wait to see what the future holds for us.
