Winners of the 2016 USAT Mid-Atlantic Talent ID Series

Congratulations to the winners of the USA Triathlon Mid-Atlantic Talent ID Series! We had great participation across the Region, and through this expanded athlete base we were able to award top three male and female 15-19 year olds, and top three male and female 13-14 year olds (some categories didn’t receive enough participants to award all three placements).

Attached are the winners of the series, and also a file that includes all of the athletes who participated. Please note that in order to be awarded overall series awards, athletes needed to participate in two or more events. And, in the event of a tie the athlete with more races would prevail.

Winners will be contacted shortly about their awards.

I’m interested in hearing your feedback about the series, scoring, etc. If you have something you would like to share please email me at clausch@usat-ma.org.

Thanks!

Christy
