Based on this criteria, Mission Viejo’s Abigail Miller also qualifies for the World Junior Open Water Championships as the runner-up in this event at Nationals.

Weinstein, Abigail Miller, and Cher Patrick established themselves in their own pack early on, and maintained their order throughout the entire race. Weinstein built some ground during the 2nd lap and extended her lead on the final lap.
