Jayssie Haynes came into the season with the third-best 200-yard breaststroke in Cal State Bakersfield women’s swimming history. Now, she has the second-best time to her name. Haynes’ time of 2:19.20 passed Rachel McCall’s mark set in 2011. Haynes now trails only Dylana Milobar’s 2:16.75 set in 2016.

"Jayssie Haynes has another great meet," coach Chris Hansen said to GoRunners.com. "Haynes becomes the second fastest women in CSUB history in the 200 breast today, with a time of 2:19.20."

Women’s swimming pulls off dramatic win

"The meet came down to the last relay — Morgan King, Alisa Cooke, Taylor Cossu and Audrey Willoughby were able to pull off the win,” Hansen told GoRunners.com.

The meet was part of a tri-meet that also included Hawaii. CSUB fell to Hawaii, 171.5-119.5.

The women are 3-3 to open the year and head to Cal Baptist on Nov. 4.

Golf finishes fall slate

The Roadrunners’ golf team ended its fall season with a fifth-place finish out of six teams at the Cal Poly Invitational. It capped a tough period for CSUB overall which saw it finish 10th of 12 teams and 12th out of 12 teams in its other two meets.

The golf team will be back in action starting in February for a 6-match slate before the Western Athletic Conference championships in April.

“We are excited to hit the gym hard and work on the weaknesses that were exposed this weekend over the offseason,” coach Meghan Thomason said. “We will be back in February better than ever."
