MORE ABOUT THE BOARD MEMBERS

 

Todd Fedorovich

Todd moved to Clermont from his home state of Ohio in 2007.  It wasn’t long after he moved to Clermont that he participated in his first triathlon at the Thursday evening Sprint series at Lake Louisa.  One led to another, and after completing a few super sprints he was hooked!  Since then he has completed many triathlons and running races in almost every distance offered.  Finishing the GFT full ironman distance in 2020 is his favorite and most memorable accomplishment. He loves getting others involved in the sport and enjoys the fellowship with all the CTC members and participating in CTC training events.  Todd and his wife Stephanie enjoy running together and going on adventures with their three teenagers. He also loves his job selling medical devices, improving patients’ lives with the products he represents, and simply being involved in patient care. Todd and his family attend The Lakeside Church.


Heike Neumann

Heike Neumann moved in 2015 from Germany to Clermont. While being passionate about water skiing, she decided at the end of 2018 that this isn’t enough activity to offset the hours spent in front of the computer for work as Vice President Marketing for a major corporation.
She decided to finally conquer a 5k, which she never had completed despite spending the majority of her life in competitive sports. She discovered Parkrun and met members of the Triathlon club. In 2019 she ran her first 5k race and since then she started to run more races, longer distances, got on the bike and into the water. In 2020 she completed her first sprint Triathlon, the Great Floridian 1/3 distance and a Half Marathon.
You will most likely run into Heike on the trail at Waterfront Park or at Lake Louisa State Park, where she does most of her training.

Betsy Langan

Betsy moved from her home state of Pennsylvania to Key West in 2003, where she spent a half-dozen years "wasting away in Margaritaville".  Tired of the Keys party lifestyle, she discovered running in 2009, and soon ran several marathons.  A new love for the endurance lifestyle branched into cycling, and then finally open water swimming in the Keys cobalt blue waters.  The local sprint brought it all together as her first tri in 2010.  Now a three-time full IRONMAN finisher, she recently raced her 50th USAT-sanctioned triathlon.
Betsy is a USAT Level 1 Certified Triathlon Coach and obtained IRONMAN Coaching Certification in 2015.  Her most rewarding triathlon experience has been coaching two teams of Drug Court clients, facing felony substance-related criminal offenses, to transform their lives through sport and complete a sprint race.
Betsy moved to Clermont in 2018, specifically because of this amazing multi-sport community.  She works as a private practice substance abuse and mental health therapist.   She met her husband, Mike, when they randomly ended up on the same relay team at the first-ever Tri Key West in 2010.

 


Brenda Skoczelas

Brenda grew up in Downers Grove, IL and moved to Muncie, IN to play soccer at Ball State University. She graduated from BSU with a Bachelor’s degree in Mathematics and a Master’s degree in Physics. Her area of research was biomedical physics. Brenda’s personal experiences have given her a strong desire to mentor and encourage young girls to pursue STEM careers. She has taught Math and Physical Science courses since 2008. She was hired as a Physics Instructor at Lake-Sumter State College in August, 2014. Brenda completed the Indianapolis 500 Half Marathon in May 2009 and this led to her participation in triathlons.

 


Josh Castleman

Josh grew up in Clermont, and graduated with the last class from Clermont HS in 1993.  For the last 23 years, Josh has taught physical education and coached various sports--with the greatest satisfaction coming from helping kids accomplish things they didn't realize they could do.   Josh enjoys all sports, but spent most of his younger years playing soccer and basketball.  Josh married his wife, Kate, 16 years ago and they moved to the Greenville, SC area to start a family.  It was in SC that Josh did his first 5k race and then became involved in triathlon and loved how the sport taught the value of discipline and overcoming adversity--which had a positive impact on other areas of life such as his faith and his work ethic .  His family moved back to Clermont in 2013 and they love being here--living close to Waterfront Park with their 3 young boys.  Josh currently teaches middle school P.E. in Clermont and attends the Church at South Lake along with his family.
