Two Club Olympia swimmers won their age divisions in the 2017 Central Zone Open Water Championships on Lake Andrea in Pleasant Prairie, Wisconsin.
Misha Machavariani led from start to finish in the 10-and-under boys 1K event. He finished in 13 minutes, 43.69 seconds.
Nalanie Cortez used a big kick over the final 100 meters to win the 11-12 girls 2K event. She finished in 25:31.23.
Brady Beyer took fifth in the 11-12 boys 2K. He swam 26:38.01 in only the second open-water race of his career.
Olivia Morlok traveled more than 30 hours on a return trip from Japan to Indianapolis, then rode with her family to Wisconsin to arrive just six hours before her girls open 5K race. Still, she was the top Indiana swimmer and finished 21st in 1:03:12.49.
Club Olympia swimmers scored 54 of the 142 points for Team Indiana, which finished fourth.
