Meet the Officers


I am a junior pursuing degrees in Finance and French, along with an Accounting minor, at the University of Texas at Austin. I was initially a runner for my cross-country team in high school, but then decided to challenge myself to train for triathlons during my freshman year at the University of Texas at Arlington. Since joining UTA Triathlon Club and Texas Triathlon, I have competed in one triathlon and have signed up for three more this upcoming year. In my spare time, I enjoy reading, going to live music shows, eating the delicious food around Austin (especially tacos and BBQ), and watching favorite shows on Netflix and Hulu.


My name is Ben Deschner. I'm a second year student at UT from San Antonio majoring in Finance on the pre-med track. This is my second year on the team and I look forward to completing my first 70.3 later this year.

My name is Vincent Hua, I am a first year student at UT majoring in chemistry on the pre-med track and I love dark chocolate! I was born and raised in Houston, TX. I am multilingual as I am fluent in english, spanish(sort of), and 3 dialects of chinese. I decided to join the triathlon team as I love challenges and love to find different ways to challenge myself mentally and physically. I've only been on the team for one semester and I can already say I love the sport and the people that I have met while being a part of this team!


Hey Everyone!! My name’s Sarah, and I am a sophomore biochemistry major. I started racing triathlons my senior year of high school and never looked back. I have completely fallen in love with Texas Triathlon, and honestly believe anyone who joins will too. Get ready to have the most awesome year yet!!

Hey there, I'm Neil and I'm the president for Texas Tri. I'm a Sophomore double majoring in Psychology and Economics with a minor in German. Besides running down cheetahs and racing with sharks, I also love jamming on guitar, going hiking, and playing football with my friends. If you have any questions about the sport, the club, or you just want to meet someone on the team, the best way to start is by shooting me an email! I look forward to hearing from you!

I grew up in San Angelo, TX and attended Central High School. I started to train for my first triathlon during the spring semester of my senior year in high school. I started at UT during the fall semester of 2012, and am majoring in mechanical engineering. I will complete the Buffalo Springs 70.3 at the end of June 2014. My long term triathlon goal is to qualify and finish for the Ironman World Championship in Kailua-Kona, Hawaii.


Hi friends, I'm Christina from UT's class of 2018. I'm a mechanical engineering major and grew up in Longview, Tx. Being a runner my entire life, I'm always up for a challenge and Texas Tri has definitely been a great way to push myself while making lifelong friends. Feel free to ask me any questions, Welcome to the Team :)


Hey guys,my name is Lewis Tsai. I'm a fourth year Biochemistry major. I did my first triathlon 2 years ago and I've been a triathlete ever since. Other than swimming, biking, or running, you can usually find me doing something outdoors, napping in random spots, or constantly eating. Oh yeah, I once ate a large pizza in roughly 25 minutes....
