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.
