Two weeks before the 30th annual SoHi Pentathlon, Seward senior Eileen Audette didn't think she had a shot at winning. Less than a week prior to the Pentathlon, Kodiak senior Nando Macinko wasn't even at practice due to strep throat.
Both overcame those obstacles to claim Pentathlon crowns Friday at Soldotna.
The Pentathlon is the most unique meet in Alaska high school swimming. Each competitor swims a 100-yard individual medley, 50 butterfly, 50 backstroke, 50 breaststroke and 50 freestyle. All the times are added up to determine the winner.
