Clermont Challenge 2014

March 15th, 2014   

TriGators kicked off the season for Spring 2014 with the non-drafting race of Clermont Challenge on March 2nd.  We had a showing of 13 people for this race including Kacy Seynders, Abby Garner, Anne Elise Creamer, Mackenzie Koth, Claudia Noah, and Angel Wong on the Women’s side and Luke Jeske, Clayton Cozzan, Justin Runac, Dennis DiPasquale, Nick Chin, John Fernandez, and Taylor Col on the Men’s side. The later race start this year allowed for slightly warmer temperatures, so many people could race without a wetsuit. The 4-loop bike course and 2-loop run course were great for crowd support. Thanks to Jorge and Daniel for coming out to cheer us on. Top finishers included Kacy in 2nd place for the women’s race, Abby taking 4th,, and Anne Elise taking 9th.  In the men’s race, Luke took 4th  (1st Florida Collegiate) and Clayton finished 8th (4th Florida Collegiate). This was the first of three races for the conference season, all in the month of March. We head to Orlando, for the Wildman Olympic Triathlon next!
