For the second year in a row, USA Triathlon has named the Hyannis Sprint Triathlon as the Massachusetts High School Championships.
Students enrolled in a Massachusetts high school or preparatory school, grades 9-12, in the current academic year are eligible to compete on June 16 for the honor of top three male and female scholastic triathletes in the Commonwealth. High school students from other states are also welcome to compete. The USAT title is reserved for students from Massachusetts schools but others will be eligible for the age group awards (15 and under, 16-17 and 18-19).
The high schoolers will receive their own swim waves at the race and will have their own designated bike racks in the transition area. They must follow the competition rules of all USAT age group events. Drafting on the bike leg will not be allowed, and officials will be present on the course.
The high schoolers will be invited to a practice triathlon in the spring organized by the Cape Cod Triathlon Team. Details will be announced on the Hyannis Triathlon website.
Any student, parent, athletic director, high school team organizer or coach is invited to contact Kathleen Walker to be placed on the mailing list for updates about the competition.
