The CU triathlon team celebrates at the Rocky Mountain Triathlon Collegiate Championships in Lake Havasu, Ariz. The team swept the men’s, women’s and overall titles.

Three CU club sports programs won national titles during the spring season: swimming and diving, freestyle skiing and the crew team (women’s novice eights). In addition, CU triathlete Jessica Broderick won the female overall individual title at the Collegiate Nationals, leading the CU women to a runner-up team finish. Meanwhile, two other club sports lost in national championship games — women’s lacrosse and men’s Ultimate Frisbee. All of the athletes involved will be recognized for their successes during a home football game this fall.
