Bradley has top 10 Ironman 70.3 finish

Contributed Story, Posted 30 June 2015

Lyndonville native Scott Bradley earned the first top 10 finish of his pro triathlete career at the Ironman 70.3 in Raleigh, N.C. on May 31.


In posting a career best total time of 4:09.27, he finished 10th out of 24 competitors in the Male Pro Division and out of 2,156 overall competitors.


The competition opened with the 1.2 mile swim and Bradley came out of the water 20th out of 24 male pros which was the most he had beaten out of the water in his four professional races.


He then made his biggest move on the leader board in the bike competition, which is his strongest event. He finished the bike in 14th place, riding the 56 miles in a personal best time of 2:10.07. It was the third fastest bike time among any of the competitors.


He also did a personal best time in the 13.1 mile (half marathon) of 1:22.02 which was the 11th best time of any of the competitors.


In besting his own previous best by over 5 minutes he made another strong move up the leader board. After 6.7 miles he was still in 14th place trailing No. 13 by 40 seconds and No. 12 and No. 11 by 2 minutes and 40 seconds. However, he passed all three over the next 6 miles before turning the last corner about .4 of a miles from the finish line.


At that point he set his sights on the 10th place runner, about 75 to 100 yards ahead of him. He put on a late burst and passed the runner to earn the coveted top 10 finish by a narrow one second margin.


Bradley then just missed another top 10 finish when he placed 11th in both the Pro Male Division (22 competitors) and overall (2,279 competitors) at the Ironman 70.3 Mont-Tremblant, Quebec on June 21 with an overall time of 4:09.50.


He came out of the water 21st out of 22 Male Pros with a personal best time of 29:45 but had trouble shedding a new wet suit and left the transition in 22nd place.


Again though he made his biggest move up the leader board in the bike competition finishing the 56 miles in 2:12.25 and in 13th place. This was the ninth fastest bike among all the competitors.


Keeping the momentum, he picked up two more spots on the half marathon run finishing the 13.1 miles in a time of 1:22.39. for an 11th place finish.


"In past years, Scott would climb the leaderboard on the bike, but he would be fortunate if he was able to not lose a few spots during the run.  That he is now able to gain spots on the run is a huge step forward this year," said Scott's dad, Wes Bradley.  "Breaking the 30 minute barrier in the swim was a nice improvement, but realistically he is targeting the 27 minute range in order to be able to finish in the money.  Again in Mont-Tremblant, the top 8 Male Pro finishers received a paycheck.  As in Raleigh, Scott was pleased with his performance.  Though it was a few seconds slower the IM 70.3 Raleigh, this was a much more difficult bike and run course, so finishing so close to his Personal Record from Raleigh was very positive. "

 

Bradley, who is currently on vacation from his position as Intern Coordinator at Wayne Central School, now has three more competitions scheduled over the summer. He will compete in the New York City Triathlon on July 19, the Ironman 70.3 in Calgary, Alberta on July 26 and the Ironman 70.3 Timberman in Gilford, N.H. on August 16.

The recently announced plans to bring boys varsity volleyball back at Lyndonville High as a merged sport with Medina recalls the time when the Tigers spikers ruled in Section V Class C championship competition claiming three titles within a span of just seven years.


In fact, Lyndonville captured back-to-back Section V Class C boys volleyball championships in 1973 and 1974.


In the 1973 title match, Lyndonville roared out to a 10-0 lead in the opening set and went on to defeat Avoca 15-5, 15-11 at Rochester. That victory ended a six year sectional title drought for the Tigers.


In the semifinals, Lyndonville erased an early 7-0 deficit and rallied to defeat Marion 15-12, 15-6.


The Tigers, whose lineup included George Slusser, Dan Thurber, Ed Hettig, Bruce Landis, Walter Grabowski, Frank Goodrich, John Boyce, Jeff Francis, Scott Thurber, Scott Mason, Jay Huntley, Jeff Wakefield, Mark Taylor and Paul Martin, also came from behind to defeat Keshequa 15-17, 15-10, 15-4 in the quarterfinals.


Jeff Wakefield, Scott Thurber, Dan Thurber, Mason, Slusser, Taylor and Martin were also all members of the Tigers 1974 team which defeated Bolivar 15-5, 15-12 for the Class C championship at Penfield.


The Tigers, whose squad that year also included Norman Woodworth, Greg Wakefield, Paul Suhr, Doug Warner, Kevin Baadsgaard, Scott Smith, Ernie Johnson and Terry Woodworth, blew an 8-0 lead in the decisive second set before rallying from a 10-8 deficit to repeat as Section V Class C champions.


Slusser, Baadsgaard, an exchange student from Norway, Taylor and Woodworth did yeoman work in the spiking and blocking departments for the Tigers as the passing and setting of Martin, Dan and Scott Thurber and Smith keyed the offense.


In the semifinals, Lyndonville rallied to defeat Cohocton 15-7, 17-15. The Tigers downed York 15-2, 15-4 in the quarterfinals.


Just as is the case today, the Genesee Region League had no boys volleyball league. Lyndonville downed Wyoming 15-9, 15-6 for the league's berth in the sectionals in 1973. The Tigers then defeated Kendall 15-5, 15-13 for the sectional berth in 1974.


Lyndonville earned its first Section V boys volleyball championship in 1968 when the Tigers outlasted Cohocton in a marathon 15-11, 13-15, 21-19 for the Class C title. The Tigers also needed three sets to oust Red Jacket in the semifinals 10-15, 15-4, 15-3.

It's just the first week of summer but there are already signs of autumn as area high school football teams are beginning summer camp workouts in preparation for the early September season openers.


Medina began its series of summer camp/clinic sessions at Vets Park on Thursday with Brockport, Batavia and Oakfield-Alabama joining in the workout. Starpoint is also expected to join in future sessions.


The session saw the various teams work separately on individual unit drills. The teams then paired up for 7 on 7 and 11 on 11 workouts.

Mustang linemen work on a blocking drill.

 

"We pack a lot into it," said Medina head coach Eric Valley of the session. "We've been doing this for several years and it has been huge for our program. It gives us a chance to really work on fundamentals, to get some of our new kids and JV players acclimated to the speed of the varsity level and just really get back into the swing of things."


The Mustangs will be holding the weekly camp/clinics on Thursdays throughout the month of July (except July 2) and then host a three-day mini camp the first week of August. Regular preseason practices will begin in mid August with the season opener scheduled for Sept. 4 against Lew-Port at Vets Park.
