Triathlon Club successfully kicks off the season
Swim. Bike. Run. While the rest of us lounged luxuriously on a long-weekend Sunday, the triathlon club kicked off their season in style at the Riverwinds Triathlon in West Deptford, NJ.
Club members Christopher de Leon ‘12, Dan Fine ‘11, Molly Mucciarone ‘12, Stephen Sipprelle ‘12, Nico Valle ‘12 and Duncan Wood ‘12 joined faculty members Chris Bright and Tris Wood in the sprint triathlon, which includes a 200 yard swim, 10.4 mile bike ride and 3.1 mile run.
Peddie gave a formidable showing with Wall garnering first place in the 16 and under age group; in the 17-19 age group, de Leon came in first, Sipprelle second, Fine third and Wood fifth place. Nico Valle (bike and run) and Molly Mucciarone (swim) scored first in the co-ed relay category, and Chris Bright came in third overall, missing second place by a mere two seconds.
Headed up by faculty sponsors Chris Bright, Madeline Cozine and Tris Wood, this is the club’s third year participating in the event.
