Rachel Sabotin, a Columbus resident and Trinity Lutheran freshman swimming for Club Olympia, finished seventh in her first Junior Nationals open water 5K in 1:07.56.

Both events were conducted on Castaic Lake just outside Santa Clarita, California.

Brinegar also competed in the 10K. He was swimming with the leaders through the first three of the six laps but became caught in traffic, and an official ruled he missed a buoy. After swimming about an extra 400 meters to go back around the buoy, he finished 22nd in 2:07.12.
