2015 Lake Tye Triathlon
On August 8, 2015 we raced the Lake Tye Triathlon in Monroe, WA. Coach Lisa is the race director, and she put in extra effort this year to make an official USAT Collegiate wave. We were especially excited to test ourselves against a strong squad from Oregon State University in anticipation of the USAT Northwest Regional Championships that were coming up in just over a month.
The Huskies were represented by six athletes, Jeevan Philip, Tim Durham, and Ian Christen on the men's side, and Teresa Wang, Elizabeth Fu, and Brianna Troksa on the women's side. Jeevan won the race, with Tim finishing fifth in the collegiate division and Ian eighth. In the women's race Teresa and Elizabeth were a one-two punch leading the collegiate pack, with Brianna finishing close behind in fourth. In the end, the effort was good enough for first place women's team and first place overall team on the day. After this race we knew we were in shape to take on the strongest teams in the conference at regionals.
