Since returning to the pool this fall amidst the pandemic, Coronado Swim Association (CSA) along with their newly appointed Program Director and legendary swim coach David Marsh, former 2016 Women’s US Olympic Head Coach, will be sending 10 swimmers to compete in the U.S. Open scheduled to take place Nov 12 in Irvine, California.
Nine of the athletes include swimmers currently training on CSA’s College Contingency Team (CCT). CSA’s CCT is composed of college swimmers from around the country who moved to Coronado to train with CSA as the premier training option while their college programs paused during the COVID pandemic. These swimmers have come from top colleges including Harvard, Southern Methodist University, Princeton, Brown, Columbia, University of Minnesota, Williams College, Denison and Biola University.
The other swimmer is one of CSA’s high school seniors, Kathryn Lundh, the youngest of the group to be competing this weekend at the U.S. Open. Lund has already committed to UCLA’s class of 2025.
“We are very proud of the program we are building here in Coronado,” said Coach Marsh, Team Elite Head Coach and CSA’s Program Director. “Our College Contingency athletes have done a tremendous job staying focused and training since their arrival in September. We are excited to watch their growth as we prepare for the Olympic Trials in June of 2021.”
President of CSA, Peter McVey said, “The program is moving in an incredible direction. We couldn’t be more thrilled with the growth of the program. All our athletes have done a wonderful job this season. We cannot wait to see how many of our athletes represent Coronado in the U.S. Olympic Trials.”
Helping to foster well-rounded excellence, Coronado Swim Association – Team Elite believes in providing a technique-focused swimming environment that encourages its athletes to reach their full potential, both in and out of the pool.
