USC Freshman Minna Abraham showed out in Austin this past weekend, swimming a new program record in the 200 Free (1:41.38) that was previously held by Trojan legend Louise Hansson. Abraham has been a big part of the USC team that we’ve seen come out swinging this season, with many Trojans clocking best times at dual meets and invites over the course of the last couple months. Abraham speaks to the team culture and what has clicked so well in LA this season.

And within the last 3 months USC hired Jennifer Cohen from Washington to become Athletic Director. Cohen got stellar marks for her coaching hires and her fund-raising abilities for the Huskies.

and not even just a normal freshman, but a 17 year old freshman who’s probably about a full year younger than the typical D1 female freshman swimmer
