Trojan Gallops To Victory In Tempe

Courtesy of USA Swimming, Tempe Town Lake, Arizona.

Erica Sullivan, one of the fastest high school swimmers in the nation, will enter University of Southern California and join a plethora of very fast distance swimmers.

She will train with Haley Anderson, a USC graduate, Olympic silver medalist and world champion, Becca Mann and Isabella Rongione.

The foursome will be a force in the Olympic quadrennial under USA Olympic swim coach Catherine Vogt who also sits on the FINA Coaches Committee.

I chose USC because it’s a well-rounded program with awesome coaches as well as swimmers. It also gives me the opportunity of pursuing a career that I would like to go into,” said Sullivan, the latest Trojan national champion as she won today's 5 km at the USA Swimming Open Water National Championships in Arizona's Tempe Town Lake.

Sullivan got off to an early lead and was never really challenged, winning by a whopping 24 seconds in 58:18.168.

Hannah Moore of Wolfpack Elite was second in 58:42.418 (after finishing 6th in the 10 km on Friday), followed by 14-year-old Mariah Denigan in 58:53.438 who won the junior 5 km yesterday and finished 10th in the 10 km on Friday.

2014 Open Water Swimming Almanac



An Almanac for Open Water Swimming

An almanac is essentially a body of knowledge which is so complete that it enables people in different fields to make predictions about the future of their respective industries.

This, for example, was the purpose of the traditional farmers almanacs. It enabled farmers to determine as accurately as possible which crops to plant for the greatest harvests in a given year.

But the farmers almanac was just one example among many.
There are, of course, many different kinds of almanacs.

In fact, there is even one for open water swimming...
