Loyola Marymount University announced the hiring of Chris Rounds as its Strength & Conditioning Coordinator.

Rounds, who received his bachelor's of science from the University of Buffalo, will oversee the fitness of LMU's 17 varsity programs and its more than 300 student athletes. Rounds has already been busy with the 2000 fall sports, which will officially begin with its first contest on August 27 with women's soccer against UNLV at Sullivan Field. Other sports beginning the 2000-2001 sports season will be men's soccer, women's volleyball (ranked 23rd by the AVCA), men's water polo and men's and women's cross country.

Rounds comes from the University of Kentucky where he served as the assistant strength and conditioning coach. In his three year's at Kentucky, his main responsibilities at Kentucky were men's and women's basketball, tennis and golf. He was a major part of the University of Kentucky's men's basketball national championship team in 1998.

He has also been a certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist (CSCS) by the National Strength and Conditioning Association since 1996. While at Kentucky, he also received his master's of science this past spring.
