Coach Kirsten’s letter to the Team announcing CJ at West Point.  

I am exceedingly proud to announce that WeTri Team Athlete, CJ Hill-Holeman has officially reported to the United States Military Academy at West Point on Monday July 3rd. 

CJ was a close part of our team especially in the year leading into his acceptance in West Point this year and I just received a wonderful note from his parents thanking me for being a very positive influence and part of his life as he worked towards his goal of West Point.
Our team is so special and I would like to thank all of you for being such extraordinary families and athletes as well as a significant positive contribution to each other and the world.  I am proud of each and every one of you as today we celebrate the success of your teammates CJ as he embarks on an extraordinary journey to be a significant contribution to our world.
We are hoping to see him again soon when he’s on break.
Join me in congratulating CJ as he begins his journey at our United States Military Academy ~ West Point.
Warmly,
Coach Kirsten
