Sonja Bumann
President (president@ucdtri.com)
;)


Hello world, I’m Sonja and I’m your prezzy prez for the 2018-2019 school year! This team has been the MOST IMPORTANT part of my college career ever since I was a lil freshman, and I’m looking forward to giving back as much as I can with my fellow officers in my last year! Triathlon is a wild, exciting, and challenging sport, and it teaches you so much about yourself and how to be a stronger person in this world (#deep). But yeah, I’m happy to be here and help make this an awesome year filled with socials, racing, and ACADEMIC SUCCESS YASSS. Some things to know about me: good boi doggos are my kryptonite, hard to restrain a backhand when people sneeze/cough into their hands, will eat 6 popsicles in one sitting.



Alyssa Allen
Vice President (membership@ucdtri.com)
;)


Hi! My name is Alyssa and I am a 3rd year Clinical Nutrition major and this is my 3rd year on the team. I’m the vice president which is as close as I’ll ever be to Sarah Palin. I’m here to help out all the new members so ask me anything and everything. I can guarantee that you can’t ask anything dumber than I already have. I can’t recommend this team enough, it gave me a place and an automatic group of friends as a new baby freshman and has totally helped me grow as a person. (awwww) For reals though, I started out on a mountain bike dying after a couple miles and last year rode 200 miles in one very painful day. It has been the best part of my college experience and will be for you too! For realsies don’t hesitate to ask me anything or just say hey or even better, ask if I want to get ice cream (I do).



Max Cawley
Treasurer (treasurer@ucdtri.com)
;)


Hello all, I’m Max. I am a fourth year mechanical engineering major and this will be my second year on the triathlon team. I’m excited for a great year with lots of memories and good times. I also can’t wait to get back into season and start hitting some gnarly bike rides. Looking forward to meeting all the new peeps, and if you’re looking to go to guads, hit me up anytime!



Sarah Sun
Travel Coordinator (travel@ucdtri.com)
;)


Hi. I’m Sarah! I’m a fourth year newly changed Human Development major and I’ll be your travel planning slave… I mean travel coordinator! Get ready to receive a lot of itinerary emails from me. I’ll be organizing your race travels throughout the year, as well as #Nationals in the spring.
Triathlon is not only an awesome sport, but a great lifestyle that is lit *insert dab* and I believe, Aang can change the world.
… oh wut.
Other than staying fit, I like to take pictures, watch @sarahsday & @daviddobrik, be basic, eat salad, style hair, and make puns. Don’t be afraid to say hi! I’ll probs make you feel uncomfortable :’)



Moses Wolfe-Polgar
Race Director (racing@ucdtri.com)
;)



What up y’all! I’m one of the race directors, in my fourth year on the team and third year helping to direct the Aggieathlon. I was a runner in high school, but I couldn’t stay healthy once I got to college. Triathlon was a great way to cross train, and four years later here I am.



Kyle Jacobs
Race Director (racing@ucdtri.com)
;)


Hi friends! My name is Kyle and I am a fourth year double majoring in biomedical engineering and mechanical engineering. I am from Aliso Viejo, CA which is near Irvine. My officer position is Race Director, this means I handle all the Aggieathlon sponsorship, expo, and the super cool race tshirt. Outside of triathlon you can find me talking to dogs and arguing with NorCal people that their Mexican food is fake. If you have any questions or afraid of joining because swimming horrifies you, feel free to hit me up!




Race Director Assistant (racing@ucdtri.com)

Hey hey! By this point, you must be wondering wow, how does an incredible group of athletes have such positive energy, ripped quads, good taste in food, impeccable work ethic, and eyelashes as curly as that ocean you left off the coast of Hawaii? Let me tell you it’s partly due to you. You, my friend, are part of the future of this team. We train for you, we race for you, and most importantly we win for you. Winning comes in many shapes and sizes but once you join our team, you will always stay winning. A little bit about me while I don’t swim, bike, or run too well I like to work hard, play harder, and leave a legacy. So it’s up to you…will you be part of it? I sure hope so :) Also, I LOVE vegetables and a chat so ttyl!



Kieran Bolger
Social Coordinator (info@ucdtri.com)
;)


Greetings fellow dedicated triathletes. My name is Kieran and I’m majoring in triathlon and minoring in NPB. Tri has allowed me to be more connected to my mind, my body, my peers, and most importantly my bike. I can say to you, sitting on this couch without having worked out today, that triathlon has changed my life for the better. It has motivated me to eat better, drink more responsibly, and make better life decisions. If there’s one thing I can leave with you, you should do tri for your soul because if my soul can be fulfilled by this amazing sport, so can yours.



Mira Mastoras
Social Coordinator (info@ucdtri.com)
;)


Hello there!! My name is Mira, I’m a fourth year Cell Biology major and one of the social coordinators this year! I am so excited for all you newbies to experience this wonderful team. I wasn’t athletic at all in high school so joining tri was a big jump, but ended up being one of the best decisions I’ve made in college. Doing a triathlon is very fulfilling, but getting to train and race them with your supportive teammates and awesome friends for life is just incredible! Can’t wait to meet you all, feel free to come up and say hi or contact me if you have any questions about the team!



Isabel Gervis
Secretary/WCCTC Rep (secretary@ucdtri.com)
;)


Hi friends! I’m Isabel and I’ll be the team secretary this year! I’m a 4th year biochemical engineering major and this will be my second year on the team. Triathlon’s a wonderful, welcoming sport and I’m always down to workout with a friend (and get food after of course)!! My workout tunes include musicals, hardcore EDM, and 80’s pop hits so expect to rock out to those. This is going to be a fantastic year and I can’t wait to see where it goes!



Elise Chu
Foundrasing/Volunteering Cordinator (fundraising@ucdtri.com)
;)


Hey everyone! I'm Elise and I am a third-year Environmental Science and Management major! I’m going to be your Fundraising/Volunteer Coordinator, so look out for emails for me to join in some super snazzy volunteering with your crazy awesome teammates! It's my third year on this amazing, fun-filled, quirky, and spunky team and I encourage everyone to join!! In high school, I ran cross country and track and before that, I swam on a club team so I decided to combine the sports into one:) I also love baking, backpacking, going into the outdoors, and traveling (you could call me a honorary Kiwi). I cannot wait to meet everyone and I am always open for questions, concerns, laughs, literally anything!!



Claudia Ferreira
Sponsorship (sponsorship@ucdtri.com)
;)


Hi ya’ll! I am a third year veterinary student and this will be my third year on the triathlon team! I started this sport after quitting Crossfit about 4 years ago, and boy does it change your life for the better! I took to cycling as my main sport, but absolutely love the diversity this sport offers. I look forward to meeting you all and hopefully inspiring some budding cyclists *ahem* I mean triathletes this year!



Dylan Ostermann
Publicity/Recruitment (Publicity@ucdtri.com)
;)


Hey! My name is Dylan Ostermann and I am one of your publicity and recruitment officers. I am a 3rd year Psychology major trying to figure out why I love this sport. I got into running as a Junior in Highschool, then transitioned to triathlons when I was a Senior in Highschool. I knew I wanted to be on the team when I started, but didn’t know I was going to be joining one of the most amazing groups of people ever!! Other than triathlons I enjoy drawing, soccer, frisbee, and hanging out with this lovely crew!



Victoria Woolfolk
Publicity/Recruitment (Publicity@ucdtri.com)
;)


Hello! I’m Victoria and this year I am one of your publicity and recruitment officers! I am a second year Environmental Science and Management major. I am very excited to be an officer for Tri this year because I have been doing Triathlon since my junior year in high school and it has shaped me into the person I am today. This team has given me a home on the very large campus that is UC Davis. I love triathlon because I truly believe that ANYONE can do it, no matter what their experience or background is. All it takes is wanting to do it. In my free time, I enjoy doing anything active and outside and of course eating ice cream!! If you are reading this and are not on Tri, please come out and try it!!



Kristin Little
Uniform Director (clothing@ucdtri.com)
;)


I’m a veterinary student who began Tri at age 24 with zero experience – you can join our team and start loving triathlons at any point in your schooling journey! It has honestly changed my life. I grew up playing a few different sports but feel that I have finally found the sport that truly fits my personality and lifestyle. As uniform coordinator this year, I’m excited to work with Rini to get our team in some dope yet professional and unifying gear!



Rini Jablonski
Uniform Director (clothing@ucdtri.com)
;)


Hullo! My name is Rini and I am going to be a third year (newly switched into) Nutrition Science Major! Can you tell I like food considering that my other two blurbs involved discussion of food, but you know what else I love? Hip swag; and I will do my best with Kristin to provide this team with the hippest swag on the market. I am also a very friendly and mellow bean, so feel free to reach out to me to hang out and talk about life or beans. Much lov ~ <3



Aidan Ramey
Webmaster (webmaster@ucdtri.com)
;)


Howdy! I’m Aidan, a third year electrical engineering major and it is my third year on the team. If you are nervous or not very athletic then see me as someone who would be great to talk to or get advice because I used to be you! I started triathlon because it helped me get over my anxiety so needless to say, I love the sport :) If you ever have troubles with the website or not receiving emails, I am your guy! Also if you are ever feeling down/stressed/need someone to talk to, please contact me <3
