The Castillo family traveled from Moraga to Lake Tahoe for an open water swim event at Sugar Pine Point State Park on Aug. 12. Twelve-year-old Mia, mainly a soccer player, won her age group and was the overall winner in the half-mile swim with a time of 17.25 minutes. Mia's twin brother, Vincent, a pool swimmer, won his age group and placed sixth overall in the 1.2-mile swim, finishing in 31.24 minutes. Mia and Vincent's mother, Adrienne, an Alaska age-group swimmer in the late 1970s, won her age group too, placing eighth overall with a 34.59-minute time in the 1.2-mile swim.
