Seering Reaches Podium in St. Cloud

The Ripon College Red Hawks cycling team participated in the final mountain bike race of the Minnesota State Championship Series Saturday, Sept. 20, in St. Cloud. First-year Tiffany Seering led the Hawks with a time of 1 hour 15 minutes 7.3 seconds on the 12.5-mile course. Her effort was good enough for third place in the women’s age 19-34 sport division.

Senior Bryan Nell finished right on Seering’s heels — just 1.5 seconds behind her — to finish seventh in the men’s 19-34 sport class. Classmate Jonathan Paretsky secured eighth place and sophomore Steven Siewert placed ninth.

Racing in the citizen class, junior Christa Kussmann took fourth place in the 19-29 age division over a shorter 7.5-mile course. She completed the course in one hour, one minute and one second.
