2022 Board Members

President – Sara Rivera

I’ve been with STC since 2018 and on the board for the last three years as Membership Director and Vice President. I’m excited and honored to continue the board as the 2022 president. I hope to continue to facilitate STC’s mission of offering a supportive, educational, and fun environment to help you achieve your goals in the sport of Triathlon.

Vice President – Vincent Jones

I did my first sprint triathlon in 1998 in San Diego and I was immediately addicted. Twenty-five 70.3s and nine 140.6s later, here I am, still hooked. I love this sport and I love the triathlon community. I’ve been a member of STC for a few years, but I’m truly honored to finally be an active board member. Although I may not be the fastest athlete, I’m always happy to share the knowledge I’ve gained over the years to help fellow members reach their goals. I’ve made some wonderful friends here and am very much looking forward to working with this group in 2022!

Treasurer – Rachael Comacho-Treichler

Hi, I’m Rachael and relatively new to triathlon having just started in 2021. My background is in marathon and trail running since 2012. I’m looking forward to completing Ironman California 2022 and serving as your treasurer on the STC board!

Secretary – Eileen Newhall

I did my first triathlon, a sprint in Discovery Park, in October of 2000. Knew I was hooked as soon as I finished the race, and triathlon has been a big part of my life ever since. I’ve been a member of the Sacramento Triathlon Club since 2001. I race all distances, but my favorites are the 70.3 and Olympic distances. After retiring from full-time legislative work in 2021, I finally have the time to give back to STC by serving on its Board.

Membership – Robert Brownell

Not being very athletic growing up I decided, in my late 40s I needed to get moving if I wanted to extend my life. I took swim lessons at the Swimstitute and attended TBF’s open water swim classes and started riding my bike more. As summer ended open water swimming wasn’t looking too fun, so I started running – I used the couch to 5K app on my phone. At some point a couple of my friends said, “since we have been swimming, biking and running maybe we should do a triathlon.” We signed up for the TBF Folsom Lake International olympic distance and I was hooked before the race was even over.

Sponsorship – Luis Andarcia

Hi! I’ve participated in almost every triathlon distance from “super-sprints” to 140.6 starting in the early 90s and since then the sport has been a part of my life. 2022 will mark my second year with STC and I have enjoyed every training ride, race support and social aspect of the club. I look forward to help strengthen the relationship with the current sponsors as well as bringing new ones in.

Communications – Kristin Dreuth

Hi, my name is Kristin Dreuth, your STC Communications Director this year and for the past two years I was your Club President. I grew up competing in the equestrian world (hunter/jumpers and rodeo), enjoyed biking and running for many years and started triathlons three years ago with my husband. I look forward to continue helping the club grow, racing local races with my favorite being Santa Rosa Ironman, and being a supportive and encouraging board member.

Workout Coordinator – Susan Henning

I joined STC in 2010 shortly after moving to Sacramento and have made wonderful friends and training partners over the years. Sacramento is the best place to train for triathlons! We can run and cycle outside year round and have a couple beautiful lakes to swim in. I’ve been a triathlete since 2000 and just competed my 113th triathlon and 12th Ironman. I’m excited to continue organizing club workouts and events in 2022 with a good group of club members assisting and advising. My favorite is helping newer triathletes acclimate to swimming in open water at Lake Natoma. Don’t be shy about coming to workouts you will find people your speed and ability and make great friends!
