|Ciara 'Cici' Teter - Officer
Favorite Sport: Out of the three? Runnin' them trails. To watch? Football. Recreationally? All sports.
Major and Graduation Year: Kinesiology – Applied Exercise Physiology, May 2014
How did you get into triathlon: Once upon a time, when I was lifeguarding the Capital of Texas Triathlon my junior year of high school, I came across the tent of the Texas A&M Triathlon Team. I had never done a triathlon, and I thought their uniforms were cool. They told me to join the team when I came to A&M, and then we shook hands and I was a committed prospective Tri Aggie.
Favorite thing about triathlon: I really enjoy the atmosphere and personality of triathletes. Everyone seems to be really chill, and people choose to do the sport not because they're on a scholarship or recruited onto an NCAA team, but because they have a passion for it.
Favorite race: Collegiate Nationals in Tempe, Arizona 2013! I thought the course was visually aesthetic and fun, and I made my PR there for Olympic distance. I felt my most accomplished there basically, and I really enjoyed the trip with my teammates as well.
Sports background: Elementary school and pre-elementary I was in clubs or on teams for ballet, gymnastics, soccer, softball, baseball, basketball, and Kuk Sool Won (Martial Arts). Middle school I did cross country, swimming, and track. High school I did track and cross country, as well as lacrosse.
Hobbies and interests: Being creative and artistic when I make the time, playing sports recreationally, eating, procrastinating, being outside, coffee, wasting time on the internet, reading, everything but school...
Hidden talents: Hyperflexive elbows. I can pick my nose with my tongue... kinda. I speak enough Spanish to look like I know what I'm talking about. I can do the belly roll, especially when I have a food baby. And the most impressive one of all... I can speak telepathically with my identical twin brother...
Anything else unique or awesome: I have a twin brother who goes to UT like Melissa Hunt, so that makes me cool. I'm half Puerto Rican, which I'm really proud of and like to tell everyone. I have a black child named Jake who has floppy ears and puppy dog eyes. And I'm proud to call myself a Zebra. Gig 'em Ags! :)
