Lenoir-Rhyne Triathlon Finishes Third at Beaver County Tri Cup

In their second competition of the 2023 season, the Lenoir-Rhyne Women’s Triathlon Team finished in third place at the Duquesne University Invitational/Beaver County Tri Cup with 69 points.

Queens took home first place as a team with a 20-point performance while Wingate was the top Division II score with a 51-point second-place finish.

For individual performances, sophomore Sabrina Fleig had the best LR time with a 1:03:50.61 posting, good enough for eighth place in the competition.

Senior Teresa Vesely just missed a Top 10 finish with the 11th-best time of 1:05:16.13; while sophomore Eliska Rihova finished 14th with her time of 1:05:26.61 seconds.

Senior Sayti Plank recorded a time of 1:05:39.62 to finish in 16th place while graduate student Chloe Telian rounded out the Top 20 with a 1:06:06.84 mark.

After a fifth-place finish in the ETSU Aquathlon, freshman Zoila Sicilia did not finish the competition after getting a flat tire in the bicycle leg of the event.

In addition to the varsity success, both the men’s and women’s club teams swept the podium for individual and team performances.

The Lenoir-Rhyne Women’s Triathlon Team will return on Saturday, Sept. 23, for the Giant Acorn event at Lake Anna, Va.
