Scott Clausen, a swimmer under Jeff Pease at North Coast Aquatics, will make his way north from San Diego to the Los Angeles area to attend University of Southern California (USC) next fall. He will join his former NCA teammates Kendyl Stewart, Andrea Basaraba, and Kelsey Kafka at USC.
Clausen is primarily a freestyle specialist. He will be in Salo’s “long spirit” group no doubt, because the longer the race gets the faster Clausen goes. He competed this past May in the Open Water National Championships, finished 23rd in the 10K.
