Putting the 'try' in triathlon

July 27, 2011

Editor’s note: This is the first in a nearly year-long series of stories and sweat-laden vignettes chronicling the training regimen, pitfalls and pratfalls of two Statesman-Examiner reporters and their teammate.

July 27, 2011

As of late last week, Tournament Executive Director Bob Meshishnek and his capable volunteer staff had recruited a field of 20 teams that will play in two divisions (separate brackets for 10-year-olds and 12-year-olds). Those 20 teams will likely swell Colville’s Rendezvous weekend population by from 350 to 400 people.

With her positive outlook and fighting spirit, the teenager’s tumor has decreased in size, according to family members. The next step in her treatment is radiation, which may require Megan to go out of state.
