2017 Event Recap

The 2017 USA Triathlon Collegiate Club National Championships kicked off on Friday morning, with the University of Colorado’s Dan Feeney and Erica Hawley earning wins in the draft-legal races. The second annual High School National Championship followed on Friday afternoon with wins by Andrew Shellenberger and Audrey Ernst.

Saturday led off with the non-drafting Olympic-Distance National Championships.  Nick Noone of the University of Colorado and Cecilia Davis-Hayes of Columbia University won individual Olympic-distance national titles to begin the day in Tuscaloosa. The mixed-team relay was set to finish the exciting weekend but was halted early due to weather.

In the team competition, The University of Colorado earned its eighth consecutive overall team title. Colorado also earned the women’s team title, and the U.S. Naval Academy took home the men’s team title. Full event recaps from 2017 can be found here.
