The tri team is one of the better ones in the NCAA and often puts up great results.
Swimmers tend to do really well transitioning to tris. Runners with no swimming background struggle. And a strong cyclist can usually transition to a good runner, but often suffer as swimmers. Survive the swim, crush the bike, hold on for the run.
(Trust me, well versed in those things!!).
If your kid goes onto one of the primary sports (swimming or running), he will have little to no time to do other sports.
They also have a cycling club. And yes, based on my memory, mids can have their bikes if they are into that. But plebes have to get permission to leave the yard for training for anything.
