Presbyterian School was proud to partner with the Houston Kids Triathlon this year. Nearly 50 Presbyterian School students from Kindergarten-8th grade participated in the swim-bike-run race on Sunday, April 14, 2013 held at the University of Houston. The Houston Kids Triathlon is the largest kids triathlon in the country with 1,700 kids participating.
Presbyterian School had quite a few who placed and received trophies. A great accomplishment for many who had never competed in a triathlon before! Here's a recap of our students who placed in the top 10 for their age group.
