Two PTC'ers wrapped up their season with the Guelph Lake 2 sprint on the weekend. James Loaring took the win, and Angela Quick was 3rd overall and first junior (her last Junior race). Sheri Fraser took the overall win for the ladies, with a 3+ minute lead over 2nd place.
James even made the The Guelph Mercury, for our first bit of media exposure. I'm not holding my breath for a feature in the Toronto Star next week, but maybe we'll make that a long term goal.
There were lots of familiar faces in the junior men's race, with Karsten Madsen taking first (5th overall), followed by C3's Taylor Reid in 2nd, and Derek Quick (coached by Dan McKerrall) in 3rd.
The next generation of juniors battled it out in the Try-a-tri, with David Mackie (Fighting Koalas) posting a convincing win over 2nd place finisher Derek Hambly (Hamilton Hammerheads). Isabel Ormond (Fighting Koalas) edged Sasha Boulton (Fun2Tri) by 1 second to take the overall women's win. Five of the top 10 finishers in the try-a-tri were 14 or 15 years old. Well done!

With the season ended for the PTC, we'll take a short break, evaluate the year, and start making plans for next season. The PTC squad will get back to a full training schedule in October, and the first PTC Training Day is Sunday October 19th.
