Fleming Knights started the season in epic fashion. While many of our veteran athletes were under the weather, the rookies and athletes responded with actions rather than just words.
On the women’s side Madison Sloan, having just returned from the World Triathalon Championships in Mexico just over a week ago, led our women’s field placing 13th overall followed closely by Amy Corcoran placing 16th, Alexandra Kaczmarek and Amber Nykyforak. Good enough for our shortened women’s team to place 5th.
On the men’s side, in exciting fashion, the race came down to a photo finish as Riley Olesky placed a close 2nd, followed by Andy Hein, Jake Buchan, Anthony Slade, Joseph Tuskin, and Samuel LaChance. While our men’s team was seriously debilitated with flu and sickness we found a way to still place 5th overall with their eyes set on winning the first OCAA title in over 12 years.
While unfortunate events kept our teams scrambling one thing is for sure, when it comes down to it everyone in our team has the ability to step up.
Great job knights, we look forward to the challenge at our next meet in Seneca.
