Simone Federici
President (president@ucdtri.com)
;)


Hello!! My name is Simone Federici, I'm from the California burrito capital of the world (San Diego obviously...) this will be my fourth year on the team and I am studying communication and economics! Whoop whoop for my social science majors where you at?? (Crickets....) I don't want to waste your time so I'll just say that joining this team was by far the best decision I ever made when I came to college after running XC and track in high school. Aside from keeping you physically and mentally healthy, this team is a community and a family to belong to. We travel, we laugh, we train, we fall, we cry, we end up living together and so on. I love the great outdoors, my dog Rambo, Friday Night Lights, the McDonald's dollar menu (if you bring me the cinnamon melts I will literally love you forever), good conversations, and being able to wake up in the morning and have the freedom to make my own decisions. Please don't hesitate to come talk to me about literally anything, you won't be able to gross me out and I can be as philosophical or shallow or sarcastic as you would like. Oh also, a lot of people say I have an RBF, but I promise you the face is deceiving, I don't actually want to kill you. I can't wait for another year in Davis with this team!!



Brandon Reddish
Vice President of Membership (membership@ucdtri.com)

Hi I'm Brandon! I will be the VP of Membership and I'm in charge of making sure everyone has the proper forms filled out, dues are paid, and most importantly, that everyone is taken care of. This is my fourth year on the team and I have fallen in love with the sport of triathlon. If you have any questions regarding membership or triathlon in general, let me know.



Nick McEnroe
Clutch Officer (training@ucdtri.com)
;)


Hey folks! My name is Nicholas McEnroe, and I'm here to make sure our triathlon club has money to keep the fun rolling. I'm a second year Neurobiology major, and I'm ecstatic for another years with UC Davis, and especially, the triathlon team. In high school, I ran cross country and track, which gave me an excellent head start in triathlon racing. However, my biking and swimming wasn't that strong, but with the support of Coach John and my teammates, I'm improving every day. I don't know why you are still reading bios though, just join our club and be involved in a wonderful experience. Don't worry if you have never done a triathlon before, everyone has to start somewhere!



Rachel Preeg
Treasurer (treasurer@ucdtri.com)
;)


Howdy! My name is Rachel and will serve as your loyal treasurer this year. I have the privilege of taking your money but most of all I have the privilege of having so many amazing friends being part of UCD Triathlon. I am a 4th year Viticulture & Enology major -- yes, I drink as part of my studying regimen. This is my 2nd year with the team and wish I would have found this nugget of goodness far earlier in my college career. Outside of practice you can usually find me drinking coffee, playing a stupid amount of sudoku, or loudly performing Backstreet Boys hits. It's never too late to be part of something great or to try new things! Cheers



Emily Erlenbach
Travel Coordinator (travel@ucdtri.com)
;)


Hello!! My name is Emily Erlenbach, and I am a third year at UC Davis. I am majoring in Theatre and Dance and minoring in triathloning! If I do say so, this is the greatest team/family in the whole wide world. As your fundraising, sponsorship, and social officer, I will be making sure we have lots and lots of money for some pretty awesome things. So be prepared to eat a lot of pizza and buy a lot of cookie dough, because we will be having many fundraisers. I come from a running background (XC and track in high school), and have developed a GIANT love for all things Nike. Some things about me are I can’t stand ice-cream (even soft-serve grosses me out), and that I used a swimcap with flowers glued on that I took from a lost and found for three years now. I am SO EXCITED for this year!!



Michael Brooks

Hey everyone! My name is Michael Brooks and I'm a Third year Biomedical Engineering major from Pleasanton, CA. This is my third year on the team and I'm a Race Director this year. I look forward to putting on an awesome race this October! I came from a water polo and swimming background.

Racing Coordinator (racing@ucdtri.com)
;)

Hey all, this is Moses Wolfe-Polgar! I am a second year Biochemistry major. I hope to eventually work with professional athletes. As for triathlon, I am one of this year's race directors, so I'll be coordinating sponsors for the Aggieathlon in the fall. The UC Davis Triathlon Club offers such an amazing group of people and a great way to get into the sport! Everyone is so helpful and nice, it's just a great environment for beginners and elites alike. I encourage anyone and everyone to give it a shot, as intimidating as it may seem.
Go Aggies!



Arin Sadeghi
Racing Coordinator (racing@ucdtri.com)
;)


I'm so glad to have an opportunity to be part of Tri team, one of the friendliest
and lively sport clubs on campus. I joined the team last year (Honestly, I didn't have any swimming background and was not sure to join)
and without my teammates support I couldn't keep up and able to even compete.
This year I've more responsibility as an officers and promise to do my best to assist our team to reach our gaols have a great season together. One of the biggest goals is to organize UCD Aggieathlon this year.
I'm down for any physical activity and enjoy to be part of a great sport team, and one more thing is that when I was younger the succor was my passion.



Evan To
Racing Coordinator (racing@ucdtri.com)
;)


Hi all! My name is Evan To and I'm a 2nd year Civil Engineering major in the College of Engineering. This is also my second year on the team and I can not imagine my college career without being a part of this family. I'm also another one of the race directors along with Michael, Moses, and Arin and handle duties for the team regarding publicity and outreach.
My side-skills include music hoarding, culinary experimentation and improve, hitting the speakeasies with my bro Nick McEnroe, being a yogi, and much more! As an aside, I also have pretty bad sleeping habits and am also a ball of nerves so I'm not entirely sure how I got into this sport but I can tell you that if I can do it, so can you! DO IT FOR THE FRENDSHIP!!!
And if you have any questions, whether they're about the club, the sport, or about me, please feel free to ask! Hoping to see your face around!

Makenna Marty
Social Coordinator (info@ucdtri.com)
;)


Hi guys, I'm Makenna, and I'll be one of your social coordinators this year! My job is to make sure everyone is friends and ends up loving the tri family as much as I do. I am a second-year grad student studying Maternal and Child Nutrition, AKA learning everything you'd ever want to know about tiny humans, and hoping to go to med school in the near future.
Growing up, I did ballet - yes, nothing even slightly triathlon-related. Volunteered at Wildflower, fell in love with the triathlon community, survived my first race one year later, and now I'm here to stay. When people say you need zero experience, they mean it! Joining this team was one of the best decisions I've ever made, and I've loved every minute of learning about the sport.
If you have any questions regarding nutrition-related things (real-life example: can you eat the stems on broccoli?), or being a total noob at triathlon, or if you want to talk about being a fish-out-of-water while biking or running, I'm your girl. Here's to a great year of lots of practices, food, and trying to stay alive on runs!



Scotty Mahan
Secretary/WCCTC Rep (secretary@ucdtri.com)
;)


What's up Aggies I'm Scotty Mahan. If you like doing a great sport with some great people you are in the right place. I'm a junior bio major from Santa Barbara. I played water polo since junior high and did my first triathlon this past year and am hooked. In my free time I love surfing and you can find me looking for waves in the Arboretum. Here's to another great year. Go Ags!

Hi! I'm Sarah and this year, I'll be one of your Publicity officers! I'm a 2nd year Clinical Nutrition major and I've loved being on the the UCDavis Triathlon team. Don't be intimidated by 3 sports, its great! I ran my firs, well I guess swam and biked and ran and whatever ANYWAY my first triathlon this past year and let me tell you, THE EXHILARATION IS INCREDIBLE. This team provides:
a community of people who encourage you to achieve your athletic endeavors in fitness the best of friendships and more importantly:
provides you with the knowledge of how to REALLY eat a burrito.
Expect many trips to chipotle, peanut butter and banana sandwiches, the best workout buddies fo lyfe 'cue peace sign' and of course many fun experiences that'll make college the best! Outside of practice you'll probably see me making puns, slappin some fine rhymes, snapchatting, eating salad, rolling my eyes, having an excessive amount of snot while biking or nervously laughing (its a sign of endearment, trust me). Can't wait to laugh with you long into our 40's :')

Welcome to UCD Tri! My job is to dress you in the best threads- let me know if you have any ideas for what gear you'd like to see or any design ideas! As an officer in a position of creativity, I love to get fresh ideas and inspiration. I'm an animal science major with a behavior emphasis and have a running background. I'm also a TOTAL crazy dog lady. You may see me on campus with my black lab Zara, who is a puppy-in-training for Guide Dogs for the Blind; I am raising her to be a guide dog! She loves to come to practice and watch all the swimmers splash around, so you'll see her there too. I may seem reserved when you first meet me, but I'm always down to go out for drinks and some good conversation!
