A national-championship Sunday for Sun Devil Club Young Professionals Group

Sun Devil Triathlon Collegiate National Championship

The Sun Devil Club Young Professional Group (YPG) played an integral part in Sun Devil Triathlon winning the 2017 USA Triathlon Collegiate National Championship at Tempe Town Lake. Members of YPG volunteered for the national championship race and the preceding age-group race, and were on hand to see the Sun Devils hoist their back-to-back championship trophy.

“It was a great opportunity to come out and have YPG provide some community service while also being able to watch our national championship team take home another trophy this year,” Doug Hodges, YPG’s social and events chair, said.

The volunteer members helped on the bike course, provided assistance at the finish line, and distributed awards to all national championship contenders.

“This was another unique opportunity for YPG to get involved in supporting Sun Devil Athletics and getting a front row seat to watch our student-athletes perform above the rest of the nation,” Hodges said.

The Sun Devil Club Young Professionals Group is a membership-based organization for Arizona State University alumni, fans and donors, ages 21 to 40. Its members are often your "die hard" Devils; they bleed maroon and gold and are looking to build a stronger affinity for Sun Devil Athletics by giving back through philanthropy and collaborative engagement. The SDCYPG offers networking opportunities and several unique, fun, and engaging events throughout the year, some of which include the popular Devils' Ball, an annual golf tournament, and home-game football tailgates! Membership dues are $300 annually ($25/month) and support the Sun Devil Club and Sun Devil Athletics.
