Krohn competed in three events in swimming (50 free, 50 back and 100 backstroke). Ross competed in the 5K Road Race and won a Silver Medal with a time of 51:51.

Nationals are held in a different city once every two years. Athletes qualify locally and then go to the New Mexico State Games to qualify for Nationals.

Local qualifying is set for next spring with the State Games in July 2016.
