“I am very proud of both of these young men,” said Chris Hansen, CSUB's Director of Swimming. “They represented the Roadrunner family with great will and determination. Both Jake and Lovre will leave the U.S. Open gaining high-level meet experience and will take back some ideas that will help both the men and women's teams succeed next year.”
“Lovre swam a 2:07 in the 200 IM this morning,” Hansen said. “It was off from his time last summer, but is still a very fast time for him. After just a short, 15-minute rest, Lovre popped back up for the 50 free to swim a 24.5.”
Hansen continued on to talk about Chir's final day at the U.S. Open: “Jake ended a very successful week with another best time in the 50 breast of 29.77.”
The ‘Runners have concluded their trip to the U.S. Open and will, in Hansen's words, "take a very much-needed break”. Soric and Chir concluded the 2016-17 season at the end of February, but continued training through the summer to prepare for the Open. The rest of the squad will kick off the 2017-18 season in early October. For live results from this week's U.S. Open, visit this link.
