2013 USAT South Midwest Conference Report

Proud to be an East Texas Triathlete! 

Congratulations to our club!  Our event, the Rose City Triathlon was selected as the USA Triathlon South Midwest Region's "Favorite Medium Size Race" for the 2012 season.  A tremendous honor recognizing the hard work of our incredible volunteers and race staff.  We were also honored as our athletes garnered third place in Category II of the SMW Club Competition.  As a member of the USAT South Midwest Council, I was especially proud to see how well our club was represented at the SMW Awards Banquet as we certainly made our presence known.  It was great to see Tammy Rooney, Monty Geddie, Alfred and Carolyn Hebert, and Tom and Gwen Zoucha cheering and making sure Tyler was on the map.   Tammy Rooney gave a very moving  and well received speech honoring  her friend and multi-sport athlete, Bronda Starling with the South Midwest Region's Hall of Fame award.  At the conclusion of her presentation, the SMW members offered a standing ovation as Tammy presented the award to Bronda's family.

 Great Job Steve!

Our club is certainly blessed to have the finest regional race director, Steve Farris.  His leadership and dedication was honored by receiving not one, but TWO favorite race awards with his Premier "Hardest Half in Texas" Tri Tyler Half receiving the SMW Favorite Small Triathlon for this first time event AND for the third time, the Rose City Triathlon receiving the SMW Favorite Medium Triathlon.  Thank you Steve for your hard work and dedication to making East Texas and our community known and recognized throughout our four state area. 

Super Job ETT Athletes!

Also recognized at the Awards Banquet were Tammy Rooney for placing in her age group in duathlons, and Seth Cooke and Alfred Heber for placing in their age groups for Triathlons.  Congratulations to them and their competitive spirit--Great job!
