Kelly Claims 2nd Indoor Victory...



YWCA INDOOR TRIATHLON #2 - The first event in the Y's four-race series was large, a sell-out, in fact. The second race, which was staged on February 18, was even more "sold out." The January event boasted 62 total finishers. Seventy-seven crossed the finish line at the Feb event. Very cool. Love the direction this attendance thing is taking.

The YWCA events feature three distances, a mini, a sprint and a long.  Tops in their gender in the mini were tri coach / motorcycle enthusiast PHIL SCONZERT, who threw down a time of 28:03, giving him more than a four minute advantage over  the winning time here in January. Runner-up ANDREW HOSALLA and PATRICK KOEGEL filled out the men's podium.

Leading the way for the women in the mini was KIRI FAUL. Beautiful name, huh! She placed 4th overall among the 23 entrant field. PAULA MACKEY and TANIA KOEGEL, who is probably related to the men's bronze medalist, grabbed the 2nd and 3rd spots....


As he has done here in the past, photographer / pedagogue / devoted dad / endurance athlete STEVE STENZEL blasted his way to a convincing win in the Sprint. His 34:20 was a full eight minutes better than the winning time at the January race. No surprise, really.

Placing 2nd overall and claiming the women's title was NICOLE HESSELS which was almost two minutes better than the sprint winner last month. This race had 23 finishers. 

The longer race was won by January runner-up BRENT ELLINGSON. Repeating her January win, albeit 2:08 faster, was MEG KELLEY, who placed 2nd overall.

Thirty-one athletes completed the longer race, four more than in January.

The next race in the series is on March 18. Unfortunately, it is already sold out. The final race on April 8 is filling fast, so act quickly. RESULTS
