Recruiting for NCAA Triathlon at Transylvania University in Lexington, KY

Calling all College age young ladies that are active triathletes! In January 2014, the NCAA overwhelmingly approved triathlon as the next Emerging Sport for Women for NCAA Division I, Division II and Division III member institutions. As an Emerging Sport for Women, triathlon embarks on the journey to become a full-fledged NCAA Championship Sport, allowing female triathletes the opportunity to be official NCAA student-athletes and participate in competitive draft-legal racing.

Transylvania University in Lexington, KY is actively recruiting for their fall 2018 program.

FIT Family Series Award Winners and All Ohio Athletes Recognized

A season of racing has finally come to an end and over 75 athletes were crowned 2017 FIT Family Series Champions along with another 35 athletes finishing in the runner-up and third place positions.

All series champions please send your tri top size and your shipping address before October 15 to customerservice@hfpracing.com. Series champion tri tops will be mailed out in late December or early January. Anyone that placed in the top 3 will receive a “champion”, “runnerup” or “third place” medal in the mail in the next couple of weeks.

ABOUT THE FIT FAMILY SERIES & ALL OHIO – POINTS SYSTEM
HFP uses a sophisticated algorithm that was developed by TriRegistration.com to determine the champions from HFP’s FIT Family Series. This algorithm is also used to determine ALL OHIO rankings which rank athletes participating in all HFP events regardless of distance.

FIT Series Awards are grouped by race distance, thus separate series awards will be given for Mini Tri, Mini Du, Sprint Tri, Sprint Du, Olympic Tri, and so on, anyone racing at least 3 races in the FIT series of the same distance (and in the same category) to qualified for a series award.

NOTE: Anyone that raced in the FIT Family Series Championship at Portage Lakes State Park was awarded 25% points bonus when determining the final series points.

Overall Series Awards

The top three (first, second, third places) in all divisions and all races* competing in the series points championship will receive custom FIT Family Series award (mailed out in the next couple of weeks). The first place winners (Series Champions) of the series points championship of each division in each race will also receive a FIT Family Series Champion race singlet in December.

HFP ALL OHIO rankings are only divided by sport (triathlon and duathlon), so all races count towards your overall ranking regardless of distance. It is separated by sport and category though.

Congratulations to overall ALL OHIO Triathletes Adam Rosen & Kara Andersson and ALL OHIO Duathletes Chris Lattcovich & Lynn StreetzHallum. Check all the ALL OHIO rankings here.
