Last weekend, Megan Howard (Sophomore- US Naval Academy) and Allison Light (Junior - UCLA) competed in the first-ever Women’s Collegiate Triathlon National Championships title in Florida. Megan finished as Navy's top competitor finishing in 1:08.19 for sixth place finish. Right behind, in 9th place and second for UCLA, was Allie (1:09.38). The inaugural women-only championship was established as one of the early steps in recognizing triathlon’s status as an NCAA Emerging Sport for Women. Held at Lake Louisa State Park, a field of women ages 16-25 competed on a draft-legal 750-meter swim, 20-kilometer bike, 5-kilometer run course.
