JCC/TKC Family Triathlon
May 6th, 2012
Our team represented themselves as honorable competitiors at the first USAT Regional Youth Series Race of the season. Hosted at the JCC/TKC Family Triathlon, this race was in its fourth season; however, the directors and volunteers had never seen such a competitive field of youth triathletes and were a bit overwhelmed with the level of competitiveness and speed of the triathletes. There were more competitive youth triathletes then there were participatory athletes.
We are very proud of our team members with how they conducted themselves and overwhelmingly supported each other during the race. The race video captures this wonderfully and it can be seen on our 2012 Videos page.
It was great to compete against notable triathletes such as: Nicolas & Andres Restrepo, Kaytlynn & Heather Welch, Mateo Shanahan, Raul Luzardo, Olivia Howard, and Helene Farris to name a few. On a team front, it was fun to compete against SelecTri of The Woodlands and Tri4Him from the Dallas Metroplex. We look forward to competing with you again at the third race of the USAT regional series; The Hidden Cove Kids Triathlon in The Colony, TX.
As a team, we brought 15 triathletes and three of our team members were first time triathletes. All of our team members placed top 6 in their respective age groups and we had seven podium finishers. A special thanks to Coach Dustin, Coach Rick, and most importantly to the dedication and determination of our Athletes. We would like to thank team member parents for their support and most importantly our Lord for allowing this team to be formed.
