Jay Girl, 11, Top Overall Female In Duathlon

March 31, 2011

Jay student athlete Jorja Agrait finished as the top overall female in the 2011 Inaugural MPI Maritime Deluna Kids Duathlon this past weekend.

A duathlon is a unique athletic event that involves a run-bike-run routine. Agrait raced in the 11-12 Conquerors Division by competing in a half mile run, three mile bike, and one mile run. The younger divisions did a slightly shorter distance.

Agrait also competes on the Jay High School JV track and cross country teams. She is no stranger to being on the winner’s stand — she was the Overall Junior Champion in the Great Pumpkin 5K held in Pensacola back in November, 2010.

The 11-year old’s personal best times are 6:27 for the mile, 13:29 for the two mile run, and has run 21 minutes for a 5K.
