It was another great weekend for BTT!
Saturday brought the Olympic distance USAT Age Group National Championship, which brought Laurie Damianos, Jimmy Ellis, Maggie O'Toole and Bill Reeves to Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Bill took 6th in his division, qualifying him for the Age Group World Championship. Apparently Maggie didn't get enough on Saturday, as she went back for the sprint distance race on Sunday! Congrats, all!
Maggie wasn't the only one to race a double header this weekend. On Saturday, Carrie Mosher did her first off road triathlon, the Xterra Stoaked Standard Distance race in Hanover, NH, taking first in her age group. Talk about a nice debut! The next day, she headed down to Oxford, MA, where she took first overall female at the Hodges Village Dam & MA State Championship, a 19 mile mountain bike race. Nice job, Carrie!
The Sharon Triathlon was also on Sunday and, being a tent series race, we had a good showing from racers and volunteers alike. Jen Scalise-Marinofksy took first overall female, Juli Jones Davenport and Paul Newman both took 2nd in their divisions, Ira Sills took 3rd AG, Chris Borges went 4th AG and Bryan Canterbury and Steve Sian both had great races as well.
This weekend is a big one! Let's all send our Timberman, Ironman Mont-Tremblant, Westborough Sprint and Witch City racers off with hearty cheer and fast racing wishes! Good luck this weekend, BTT!
