Devon Dabney named All-American by USA Triathlon
January 28th, 2011

St. Pius X sophomore, Devon Dabney was named one of five Female Youth Elite All-Americans by USA Triathlon. In addition to her honor, Dabney also captured the Bronze Medal in the USA Youth Elite National Championships in San Diego last year.

Dabney, a member of USA Triathlon’s Southeast Junior High Performance Triathlon team, won the Southeast Triathlon Junior Development Race Series for the second consecutive year in 2010. She was also named an All-American Triathlete in 2009. She competes in Cross Country, Track & Field and Swimming at SPX.

According to the press release by USA Triathlon announcing the honor, Dabney is considered one of the top “up-and-coming” triathletes in the United States. The award is also based on an individual’s performances in top junior and youth draft-legal events as well as being based on their final national ranking. USA Triathlon is the National Governing Body of the sport, according to their Web site.
