Students at Lake Harriet Community School closed out the 2014–2015 school year with a group swim — immediately followed by a bike ride and a run.

It was the second year physical education teacher Jon DePerry organized the triathlon for his middle grades students. Seventh and eighth graders participated in the June 2 event held at Lake Harriet.
