Lenoir-Rhyne Triathlon Team Finishes in Second at East Tennessee St. Aquathon

The Lenoir-Rhyne Triathlon team took home second place at the East Tennessee St. Aquathon this weekend. The Bears competed against both Division I and Division II teams at the event which was a 500yd swim and a 2 mile run.

The Bears would top Division I East Tennessee St. and only fall to Queens on the day. 10 racers competed and the top five from each team were scored as LR finished with 111 points on the afternoon. Individually, Lenoir-Rhyne’s top two finishers were both freshmen in Eliska Rihova and Claudia Teran. What is more impressive is that both competed in the Cross Country meet on Friday night as did Teresa Vesley and Erica Schulz. Despite the short rest, this group propelled the Bears to a strong finish.

Total Team Scores
1 Queens 155
2 Lenoir-Rhyne 111
3 ETSU 98
4 King 43
