Fresno State student-athletes took to the streets this morning to sell the Valley Children’s Hospital Kids Day special edition of the Fresno Bee.
Mazutaityte edged Boise State's Sam Wicks by .29 seconds and set a new Fresno State record in the 200-yard backstroke championship final.
Mazutaityte placed third in the 100 backstroke championship final and nine other Bulldogs appeared in finals events.
Six swimmers and one diver will be honored on Senior Day as the Bulldogs host San Jose State; fans will receive free swim caps and autograph cards.
The Fresno State swimming and diving team owns the lead following six events during day one in San Diego, placing first in three.
