Kids place in Kansas triathlon

Two Steamboat Springs children competed last Sunday at the Longview Junior Triathlon in Kansas City, Mo.

Penn Lukens, 11, and Meghan Lukens, 13, raced in 104-degree heat on a course that combined a 200-yard swim, a six-mile bike ride and a 2K run at the Longview Lake Recreation Center.

Penn took second place in the 11-12 boys division with a time of 36 minutes, 39 seconds. Meghan took fourth in the 13-14 girls division with a time of 42:35.

The pair is competing for the Steamboat Springs Swim Team in this weekend’s summer club swimming championships at the Craig Swimming Complex.

Lynx need wins

The Northwest Colorado Lynx, a youth baseball team composed of players from Mof-fat and Routt counties, needs a win today to stave off double elimination from the consolation playoff bracket in the 13-and-under Division 2 Triple Crown World Series tournament.

On Friday, the Lynx lost, 7-5, to the Missoula Outlaws from Montana. The Lynx battled back from a 7-0 deficit but was unable to overcome the difference. The Lynx had the bases loaded when an Outlaw player made a diving play for the final out of the game.

The Lynx play today at 7:30 a.m. at Howlesen Hill.
