Each fall the team kicks off the year with the Captain's Biathalon.  It begins with a short open-water swim then a run up the beach and back to campus alongside Lake Michigan.  Then it's back into the pool for 12 laps - AROUND the pool.  No lanelines, the guys swim NASCAR-style turning left as they go.  Finally, they finish on the track with a one-mile run. 

This year, Adam VanHuis became the first back-to-back winner since Roberto Jorda-Cid in 2002-03.  Adam relied on a strong run to hold off a hard-charging Eric Ross to successfully defend his title.  Adam Glover rounded out the field as the third guy under 50:00.  Fifteen of seventeen returners bested their time from last year with an average drop of about 4:00.  Ben Coder made the biggest drop, cutting 10:37 off of his time from last year.
