We recently came across this article which tells the story of Noah and Lucas Aldrich, and their feat to complete in a youth triathlon. From Today.com, “…so he pulled and pushed his little brother the whole way as he swam, biked and ran in the sweltering heat. Their mother says that they are inseparable and it is not surprising that they would compete as a unit, stating: “The connection and the love that they share is truly unique.”
This Sunday thru Monday we will host State Golf & Cycling in Monroe, LA. Cycling will take place Sunday at Chennault Park where athletes will compete in quality cycling competition. Following competition Sunday, athletes will enjoy a victory dance! Then on Monday, the Golf portion of the competition will take place at Calvert Crossing Golf Course where athletes will compete in skills, 9-hole and 18-hole competition.
