Triathlon: Cam Hill three-peats for Arizona

Best Of The U.S. Weekend Results: May 25, 2009

St Paul, MN / May 26, 2009 -- In the only Best of the U.S. Qualifying action of the weekend, Sahuarita Lake Triathlon in Tucson on Memorial Day produced a solid Championship team for the Grand Canyon State. [tritucson.com]

Forty-two year old Cam Hill of Fountain Hills captured the Best of the U.S. slot for the third time in a row, besting Thomas Taylor (34) by 26 seconds. Thirty-five year old Brandon Sullivan was third about a minute back.

The women's race was tight, with the Best of the U.S. medalists separated by just 21 seconds. Kara Middendorf (31) was first, Sarah Lieneke-Nickle (30) second and Robin Watson (30) in third. Lori-Lynn Leach, a pro from Canada ineligible for BOUS qualifying, was actually first across the line.

In 2007, Hill and teammate Katie Ellis, who won the National Championship and now races pro, took the 2nd Fastest State Team trophies.

Up next week: OKLAHOMA’s Route 66 Triathlon Sunday May 31. [TriOKC.org]
