Prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, two juniors Moritz Bartels of Grand Valley State University and Taylor Pike of Texas A&M won the individual titles while Rice University and Grand Valley won team titles at the 2019 CSCAA Open Water Championship.

The University of Kansas hosted the event for the fourth consecutive year. “I cannot be thankful enough for all the people who poured a lot of time and effort into this,” explained Head Coach Clark Campbell. “From facilities to media relations, to athletic training. The entire athletic department really embraces this event and they put on a really good race that the kids get excited about. It is a great way to start the year.”
