On Aug. 12, senior swimmer Ian Simpson fought the 90-degree heat to finish the USA Triathlon Championship race in just under two and a half hours. He placed 461st out of nearly 1,100 male finishers.

The Olympic-length race, held in Omaha, NE, consisted of a one-mile swim, a 25-mile bike and a six-mile run. In an interview with Sportsbeat 94.9’s Grant Pepper on The Pep Talk last week, Simpson said that he came close to his personal best time during the race.

Witte said Friday that two underclassmen are in contention for the spot: sophomore Madison Broering and freshman Katie Wade.

“Soccer is not the priority on that trip, it’s kind of the balance of soccer and socializing.”

That held true for most of the team, but not for McKenna Welsh.
