Julie Swail won the women's overall title for the second consecutive year Sunday at the Pacific Coast Triathlon at Crystal Cove State Park, only this time she felt like a triathlete. Swail, captain of the U.S. women's water polo team at the 2000 Olympics and coach of the UC Irvine women's team, decided two weeks ago it was time to get serious about triathlon and move her distinguished water polo career onto the backburner. "Water polo is just a hobby," said Swail, an Irvine resident.

Julie Swail is 27 years old. She graduated from UC San Diego in 1995 and since then has been a second-grade teacher, a swim coach, sent out as a temp office assistant more times than she can count. Swail, who is from Placentia, even worked for a wine distributor. She would re-stock stores with cases and boxes of wine every day. Heavy lifting, plenty of it, was involved. This was good news. It saved Swail from the weight room at night. Robin Beauregard is 21.
