ORLANDO, Florida, March 20. FIRST Colony's Simone Manuel took down Missy Franklin's 100 freestyle 17-18 National Age Group record on the first night of finals at the 2014 NCSA Junior National Championships.

The US World Championship team member raced to 47.09 in the event, taking nearly a tenth off of Franklin's 47.17 NAG. Manuel additionally posted a lifetime best in the event in prelims with a 47.67, cutting time from her 47.73 best time posted at last year's NCSA junior nationals. Manuel split a quick 22.77 at the 50. The teenage sensation is making a name for herself now nearly every time she dives in the pool.
