KCAW’s Anne Brice and Robert Woolsey following the tri.
Raven Radio established itself as a force to be reckoned with in local endurance sports by capturing 2nd place (1:50:40) in the corporate category of the 29th annual Julie Hughes Triathlon last weekend (5-18-13). Post-graduate fellow Anne Brice (run) and news director Robert Woolsey (bike, swim) spent months developing the core strength and stamina needed to challenge the category favorite Hames Center (1:24:31), whom they lost to by a mere fraction of an hour. The near-victory proves that Raven is not only a black bird, but also a dark horse on wings.
Sitkan Jonathan Kreiss-Tomkins was the overall winner in this year’s JHT, posting a time of 1:25:57. The top solo woman was Emily Davis at 1:40:24. In the youth division, Joe Pate had the top time of 34:31. Skylar Moore was the top girl at 36:35.
