Smith wins his age group in triathlon



Benjamin Logan eighth-grade student Jacob Smith placed first in the 14-and-under division at the HFP Racing FIT Family Triathlon on Sunday in Vermillion.

Smith finished his 250-yard swim in Lake Erie, a seven-mile bike ride and two-mile run in 49 minutes and 41.6 seconds. That time made him fifth-fastest male in the race.

With this weekend’s performance, he is in second place going into the championship race for the Go Fast Multisport Chase to the Championship, which is Sept. 14 at Portage Lake in Akron.
