RE: Lukas V top 5 college choices?

Not a chance in the world that LV will be given a scholarship and allowed to continue his triathlon activities especially in the summer build-up. Where in the world did you get that idea? You must be visiting from another planet. If he will be running CC in the fall, you better know he will be on a summer training program that gets him ready for CC and not jaunting worldwide for triathlon competitions. Biking and swimming are not likely part of that preparation program. What he did in HS will not fly in college. The schools call the shots and not Lukas in college. You bet you have the wrong idea.


I know you can not compare that one by one, but I am at a good D2 school(Queens) and my coach allows me to train for triathlons (I'm decent, I competed for Germany in the Junior Worlds) during the spring and summer, as long as I perform well on the track too, and focus 100% on XC in fall. So there are definetely coaches and programs out there who are willing to support your individual development and desires.

And LV is three-times as good as me so there should be no problem for him to find a coach who will help him to combine running and triathlon.
