JOHNSON CITY, Tenn. (Oct. 1, 2016) – The ETSU women’s triathlon team will compete in the East Regional Qualifier Sunday morning in Greensboro, N.C. This will be the third competition that the Bucs have taken part in their inaugural season.
“I am very excited for us to participate in the East Regional Qualifier,” said ETSU Head Coach Janine Pleasant. “For the first time we will have four athletes competing. We will get to race against teams we have not seen yet which will give us a more complete view of what our competition will look like at Nationals. The team has been training hard and I am expecting good results.”
The top three five-woman teams from each regional qualifier, as well as a minimum of the top two individual women from those events, will automatically earn a spot for the Women’s Collegiate Triathlon National Championship on Nov. 5. The National Championship field will be limited to 75 women comprised of NCAA Varsity Programs and USA Triathlon-registered collegiate club teams.
