Cameron Park’s Nathan Kohl scored 200 points to win his age group at the Santa Cruz Triathlon, held earlier this month.

The victory also earned him the Championship in the USA Triathlon Talent ID Search Series in the South West Region that includes California, Arizona, and Nevada. Kohl entered the event trailing in total points.

After the half mile swim portion of the race, Kohl found himself in in the sixth position. During the 14-mile bicycling section, he moved up to second place and eventually took the lead on the final three-mile run.

Of the 248 athletes completing the triathlon, the 15 year-old Bruin sophomore had the 14th fastest overall time.

Kohl has competed in triathlons since he was eight. Over the past year he earned a podium spot in every one of the 12 triathlons he entered. A few weeks back, Kohl was the first overall finisher in the U.S.Bank Kids Duathlon (associated with Eppies Great Race) — defeating everyone 17-and-under, including relay teams.

This fall, Kohl will run cross country for the Bruins and he’ll also be on the Bruins’ Mountain Bike Club Team. Kohl’s biking skills helped propel their inaugural team to numerous podium spots in the NorCal High School Cycling League.

Kohl competes year round whether it’s doing off road Xterra triathlons, downhill races, or cyclocross type events. During the wet winter months he’s on local trails riding at night with one bright light affixed to his bike with another on his helmet.
