Trojan’s Haley Anderson followed up a second-place effort in the 10K on Friday with a victory in the 5K event today at the U.S. Open Water Nationals at Miromar Lakes in Florida.

Anderson topped the field with a time of 1:01:51.291. Anderson is an Olympic silver medalist, having taken second in the 10K event at the 2012 London Olympics.  She has a chance at making the 2016 Rio Olympics with her inclusion on the Worlds roster in the 10K this summer.  She also could add a second world 5K title to her resume after winning the event in 2013.

Ashley Twichell, now representing Triangle Aquatics in North Carolina, took second today in 1:01:53.638, while 10K victor Becca Mann of NBAC wound up third overall in 1:01:56.668.

Eva Fabian of Greenwood Swimming led the rest of the pack of swimmers with a fourth-place 1:02:09.274, while RallySports’ Christine Jennings earned fifth in 1:02:09.771.

Badger’s Lindsay Vrooman, NCAP’s Kaitlin Pawlowicz and Trojan’s Tristan Baxter all rounded out the top eight finishes in what proved to be an packed second bunch of swimmers.
