With the race series ending and the semester coming to a close, the UBCTC held their year end party in a big way!
Andrew Wight, VP External for the UBC Triathlon Club has been working really hard on getting sponsorship and managed to get Ryders Eyewear to donate 8 PAIRS of sunglasses to the club to be given away to race series participants in a draw.
Matt, Celeste and Scott sporting their new swag!
In order to close off the semester fully, there was a little matter of the awards to be handed out.
The race for the Vincent Lavallee Cup was close and after a brief speech was handed out to Race Series Overall Winner Matt Reeve and Female Winner Lauren Sagadore.
Having their names engraved for the first time on the Vincent Lavallee Cup, Lauren and Matt were very excited. Winston was as well, he just wanted to be near the trophy as can be seen in this next photo as well. Could this mean Winston has his eyes on it for next semester?
Nathaniel Showing up Late Posing with the Cup and his Trophy
With this event finished with, the Fall semester was finally finished and only exams stood in the way of our athletes and their home for the holidays.
What will next semester bring? Will Matt be able to defend? Will Nathaniel make up the necessary ground? Will one of the girls take over the title of series champion? Will Lauren be able to defend her title? Or will Claire and Victoria have something to say along with Melanie who boldly stated repeatedly for anyone who would listen that she "Was going to own the competition next semester"
Should be exciting!
Happy Holidays! And see you all in the new year for a full new series!
