Endorphin Fitness Youth Teams

We thought long and hard about who to choose for Athlete of the Week this week. After such a memorable weekend, it was difficult to pick one individual when the whole Endorphin Fitness Youth Team made their mark at USA Triathlon Youth & Junior National Championships.

So this week, we want to recognize all athletes on both our Youth and Junior Elite teams.

At the Youth & Junior Triathlon Nationals, our  EF Youth and Junior Elite Teams crowned 7 individual national champions, placed 13 in the top 3, and had 31 place in the top 10 over the course of the weekend.  In addition, our Junior Elites finished the season in 3rd place nationally in the elite series and our Youth Team took home the national title in the team competition.  We could not be more proud of our athletes who we will highlight below:

In the Youth Elite Girls Race, we had 5 girls come off the bike in the front pack with Parker Albright running away with the win to claim her 2nd national title followed by Abigail Church in 2nd, Hannah Ye in 7th, Zoe Van Winckel 11th, Alexandra Poole 18th, Megan Buchanan 24th, Paige Lind 25th, Hope Frost 29th, Eloise de Landevoisin Campbell 34th, and Jordan Pham 67th.

In the Youth Elite Boys Race, Coleson Lindsey had a standout race taking 10th followed by Nick Pilgrim in 27th, Otto Gerstl 48th, Luke Rosser 56th, and Ben Poling 63rd (after 2 crashes).

In the Junior Elite Girls Race, Grace Sheehy finished strong in 20th followed by Chloe Ramirez in 26th, Lexi Christie 30th, Maya Sterling 45th, Kaitlyn Yasnowsky 52nd, Carson Everman 56th, and Marisa Ruotolo 67th.

In the Junior Elite Boys Race, Justin Free came from the first chase pack to finish 41st followed by Tyler Finnegan in 60th.
