Daniel and Tatiana Vertiz both won TriRock Austin championships Monday, but the sibling triathletes earned their titles in very different ways.
Daniel, a sophomore who competes in track and cross country for the University of Texas, topped the elite men’s field in the Olympic-distance event by more than 4 1/2 minutes. He finished in 1 hour, 59 minutes and 51 seconds while Scott Tonder, an Air Force lieutenant from San Antonio, was second in 2:04:23. Defending champion Jamie Cleveland, an Austinite, placed third in 2:04.41.
