2022 Women's Triathlon Collegiate National Championships

Collegiate triathlon was at its finest in Tempe, Arizona, at the Women’s Collegiate Triathlon National Championships last weekend. Entering Saturday’s competition day, teams were in a tight race to the overall national title after going head-to-head in two qualifying races in the 2022 season at Smith Mountain Lake, Virginia and Stockton, Missouri.

The Arizona State University women’s collegiate triathlon team earned its sixth consecutive NCAA Division I national title Saturday, Nov. 12 at home in Tempe, Arizona, at the Women’s Collegiate Triathlon National Championships. Scoring a total of 239 points, the Sun Devils had four athletes finish in the top 10 to hold off a strong Queens University of Charlotte team that made its DI debut this season after winning six titles competing at the DII level.

With Queens moving up to DI, that meant a new champion would be crowned in the DII race, and that honor went to fellow North Carolina school, Lenoir-Rhyne University, which scored 268 points to win its first national title.

In the DIII ranks, North Central College took home its fifth national crown, tallying 215 points.
