A record field of 93 student-athletes competed for team and individual titles at the 2018 Women's Collegiate Triathlon National Championships, held Nov. 4 in Tempe, Arizona. The course, centered at Tempe Town Lake, featured a 750-meter swim, draft-legal 20-kilometer bike and 5-kilometer run. Races were separated by division for the first time, with NCAA Division III and collegiate club teams racing together in the first wave and DI and DII programs following in wave two.

Hosts Arizona State University earned a dominant victory in the DI team competition for the third consecutive year, also sweeping the top-five spots individually in the DI/DII race. Queens University of Charlotte successfully defended its DII team national title, while North Central College earned a three-peat in the DIII team competition.

ASU's Hannah Henry earned her second straight individual title in the DI race, while Queens' Tereza Zimovjanova claimed the DII crown. Bringing home the DIII individual title was North Central's Kate Canfield. The University of Colorado's Ali Schwein was the top overall finisher in the DII/collegiate club race, taking top honors for club athletes.
