LAUREL COUNTY, Ky. — Nearly 80 individuals participated in the first Catbird Triathlon, held Saturday morning at Crooked Creek Golf Club.

“We were very pleased with the turnout for this being our first year,” South Laurel swim coach Sarah Wilder said. “We had about 75-80 participants overall, with a large part of them from out of town. So it was really good to see these people traveling to come out and support high school swimming.”

Lewis Jackson captured the Open Age Group 59 & Under Men with a time of 51:30. Kevin McKinney came in second at 55:32 and Jesse Frost third in 55:38. Twenty nine men competed in this division.

Laura Clark won the Open Age Group 59 & Under Women with a time of 59:01. Second place went to Teresa Hamilton with a time of 1:15.04, while Shelley Stanko took third in 1:19.40. Five women competed in this division.

This event was held as a fundraiser for both the North Laurel and South Laurel swims teams.

“We are definitely planning on having it again next year, and are looking forward to it growing and becoming an annual event,” Wilder said. “Overall, I think we raised around $3000, so that will be a big help towards helping fund both ours and North’s season.”

Susanna Domidion won the 7-9 girls in 22:02, while Kellen McKinney won the 7-9 boys event in 17:10. Sydney King won the girls 10-12 in 19:41, and Jonah Black won the boys 10-12 with a time of 14:44. Sydney McWhorter won the girls 13-15 in 20:52 and Keller Brown won the boys 13-15 in 21:42. Hayden Combs won the girls 16-18 in 29:56 and Michael Root won the boys 16-18 in 34:29.

The team of Aubrey Cupp, Kenzie Cupp and Maddox Cupp won the 12 & under teams with a time of 30:02. The 13-18 teams was won by Tate Knight, Caleb Deaton and Hunter Riley in 32:56. The Open Age Group Team division was won by Patrice Beliveau, Laurence Beliveau and Ghazal Jawed in 1:03.56.
