Photos: USAT Collegiate Club Nationals

Malibu had more than its fair share of triathlon action taking place this weekend as it played host to the USAT Collegiate Club National Championships as well as the Super League Triathlon final and the Malibu Tri. About 400 collegiate athletes from more than 20 club teams competed in the Olympic-distance race, which saw some epic duels. In only her second triathlon, Marissa Saenger, of University of Califiornia-San Diego, won the women’s title, with Kathryn Kennedy, from Cal-Berkeley, in second, and Paralympian Grace Norman—fresh off her silver-medal winning performance in the PTS5 category at the Tokyo Paralympics—taking third.

Just seven seconds separated the top two men with Cal-Berkeley’s Bear Schickel edging out Garrett Mayeaux, of Parker University, to take the top honors. It was a day of domination for Cal-Berkeley, with four men inside the top five. Ryan Lund finished third.
