Close to 300 triathletes competed in the Mighty Hamptons Steve Tarpinian Memorial Triathlon benefiting i-tri on Sunday morning at Long Beach in Noyac.

The race featured its typical Olympic distance of a 1.5K out-and-back swim along the shore of Noyac Bay, a 40K bike ride that includes a few rolling hills that takes you through the woodland and farm roads of Sag Harbor, and a flat and fast 10K run through the streets of North Haven. A super sprint tri was also included that had a 300-meter swim, a 6-mile bike ride and 2-mile run.

Typically in the past, the top three males and females earned a total prize purse. This year, the prize money went to the teams as part of the Tri Team Challenge. The top five people on each team — which must have included one female — were scored. The fastest team won $1,000, second place $500 and third place $250.

Each triathlete was scored based on their placement in their age group. If someone won their age group, they only gained one point for their team, whereas if someone placed fifth they earned five points for their team, and the team with the lowest score won.

Team Cas Relay took first place, followed by Team Gatca and Team The Rack Pack, respectively.

Individually, in the Olympic distance race, there were a number of familiar names that finished at the top. Ryan Siebert, 32, of Patchogue was the overall champion, finishing in 2:01:12. Matthew Raske, 41, of Bronxville placed second in 2:05:13 and Tim Steiskal, 33, of Brookhaven, rounded out the top three in 2:08:23.

Kim Larson, 32, of West Islip led everyone out of the water and she was the eventual female champion, crossing the finish line in 2:13:38, which placed her fifth overall. Danielle Sullivan, 47, also of West Islip, finished second among females, seventh overall, in 2:23:15, while Jillian Jacinth, 30, of Babylon, finished right behind her in 2:24:11.

HCBL Strikes Deal With Stony Brook Southampton To Help Out With Housing Its Players

One of the hardest things for the Hamptons Collegiate Baseball League to do is ask local families to host college baseball players who are coming in from all corners of the country, and even sometimes the world. Limitations from the COVID-19 pandemic and the boom of local rentals in the past few years compounded the housing issue for the league that is built around a mission of free, family entertainment every summer.
