Hosszu, Morozov, Hansson Lead 13 Trojans In ISL Season 2
Trojan greats Katinka Hosszu and Vladimir Morozov as well as just-graduated Louise Hansson are among nine USC All-Americans, Olympic medalists and NCAA champions that will compete in the International Swimming League's second season set to start in Budapest this fall.
In addition to the nine USC swimmers, Trojan Olympic gold medalists and NCAA champions Lenny Krayzelburg and Kaitlin Sandeno return as general managers while former head coach Dave Salo and his former assistant and Trojan All-American Jeff Julian will serve as head coaches.
The league announced its swimmers will live, train and compete in the Hungary capital from Oct. 16 through Nov. 22. Top teams are scheduled to advance to a final stage in late December.
Krayzelburg is the G.M. for the L.A. Current, which includes USA national teamer Kendyl Stewart and Olympian and relay national title winner Dylan Carter. Sandeno is the G.M. for the D.C. Trident.
Salo is coaching the Tokyo Frog Kings. The Japanese-heavy roster also includes Morozov and his former teammate and fellow NCAA champion Cristian Quintero. Julian, meanwhile, will coach the Cali Condors.
Hosszu, from Hungary, headlines the Iron, which also includes Trojan NCAA relay champion Robert Glinta. Hansson, a three-time NCAA champion whose career was cut one week short of her final NCAA championships, will swim for the Toronto Titans with former teammate and NCAA relay winner Anika Apostalon.
Kasia (Wilk) Wasick, who joined Apostalon on USC's 2016 NCAA 400y relay title, will swim for the New York Breakers.
