 XCC Triathletes Amp it Up at Nationals in the Wet!

Four very brave Xavier students battled the cold, wet conditions in Bendigo, Victoria at the Australia School Sport National Triathlon Championships on the Easter holidays. The event was held at the Crusoe Reservoir where the water temperature was 18°C and the air temperature was about the same! The bike course involved tight turns and some hills which made riding very difficult in the slippery conditions. The run leg was muddy and full of puddles, so just finishing the race was an amazing achievement! Here are the results:
 
Individual Events:
 
U15 Junior – 400m swim, 12km bike, 3km run
Kayla Munson 9th
Todd Baldwin 21st
 
U17  Intermediate – 600m swim, 16km bike, 4km run
Matthew Hauser 1st
 
U20 Senior – 750m swim, 20km bike, 5km run
Tayte Dixon – 10th
 
All students did the swim leg and won medals in the following relay events:
Junior Girls 2nd (Kayla)
Intermediate Boys 1st (Matt)
Senior Boys 2nd (Tayte)
All-Age Boys 1st (Todd)
 
It was Matt Hausers’s 3rd consecutive National Triathlon Title win, equalling Olympian Courtney Atkinson’s record. Queensland also claimed its 9th consecutive victory by winning the Relay Event and Overall Champion State.
 
I cannot congratulate these amazing students enough on their continued success. Keep an eye on all of these stars as they continue to reach for success!
