LETC weekend updates from OKC and NS tri

LETC was busy, busy busy this past weekend with members racing at the ITU PATCO Continental Championships in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma and the North Shore Sprint triathlon. North Shore Sprint triathlon

At the North Shore Tri, LETC had 15 members participating.  Rob and coach Andrew put the boys' team on the board with a pair of second place finishes, with coach Andrew placing third overall.  The girls' team never to be out done, stomped on the boys (again) with a pair or first place finishes by Stephanie and Rebecca and topped that with a second place finish by Bronwyn.  LETC collected two almost-on-the-podium fourth place finishes from Tina and Tall Jeff. and Tall Dave picked up a 5th overall in his first Elite race!

The slightly jet lagged and should have known better 15th participant failed to count to 4 laps on the bike and ended up DQ'd.  He blames it all on his race number that had too many threes in it and the pressure of having to catch Stephanie on the bike...

Way to go everyone!
