Our condolences to Janet Lammey of Surfside for the recent passing of her father, James Edward Whitley, 81. We will keep Janet and her family in our prayers.

On April 26, several seasoned athletes, along with two trainees, Surfside resident Nate Clifford and Alex Ferguson of Langosta, participated in a Country Day School Guanacaste senior student project: a sprint triathlon. The event includes swimming, biking and running, but in shorter distances than a regular triathlon. Country Day School senior Jacob Dole, who was mentored as to how to go about organizing the event and prepare the correct exercises to enhance the trainees’ skill and scores, held a practice event for testing; both participants’ scores were measured before and after so they could be verified and compared in terms of speed and transitions. Both boys showed significant improvements in their scores, so the senior class project appears to be a success. Congratulations, Jacob!
