November 4th, Rosary Triathlon made a strong impression at the California Triathlon “Newport Dunes” Event, where all of the Royals made the podium.
The race, held in the Newport Beach Back Bay, was sold out, with over 600 participants racing in the Sprint and Olympic distance events. The young women from Rosary Academy participated in the Sprint race.
Freshman Elizabeth Harita led the Royals, finishing the race in 53:13 and taking the 2nd overall woman’s spot. She led the race at the start of the bike segment thanks to a top 10 swim split.
Sophomore Isabel Alderete took third in the 13~15 age group with a fantastic sprint finish. Isabel and Elizabeth also participated in the Trinity League Cross Country Finals last Friday.
Sophomore Isabella Capps took third in the 16~17 age group with a strong sub-30 minute bike split.
Next up for the team is the Bonelli Turkey Triathlon on November 18th.
