Toledo Joe takes Masters title at Wild Cat Tri, Tina goes West

Toledo Joe Hardin finished fourth overall, first master at the Wild Cat Triathlon in Lowell this weekend. Joe put in a solid swim and run and absolutely tore it apart on the bike with the second fastest bike split (27:05 for 11 miles!). Notably, the fastest run split of the day was a blistering 13:32 thrown down by a new entrant into the world of triathlon, Eric "Bosh" Beauchesne. (At least Toledo Joe's from Toledo--after growing up with us in Chelmsford, I don't know HOW Bosh could swim in the Merrimack! Yuuuccck). Joe's strong performance racks up more points for NETT in the FIRM Grand Prix. NETT is currently 7th overall with 66 points.

In other tri racing news, Tina Wang finished sixth in her age group, 79th overall at the Greenfield Sprint Triathlon in 1:27.

Congrats to both Joe and Tina! Keep up the good work!
