KNOXVILLE, Tennessee, December 6. NATION’s Capital picked up another U.S. National Age Group record as the NCAP squad is wreaking havoc all over the NAG record books at the USA Swimming Winter Natonals.
The NCAP foursome of Robyn Dryer (1:49.54), Katie Ledecky (1:44.17), Megan Byrnes (1:50.15) and Janet Hu (1:46.03) put together a scorching fast 7:09.89 for the heat 1 win, just three seconds off the meet record of 7:05.69 in the 800-yard free relay.
That swim demolished the previous National Age Group record previously set by North Baltimore in 2010. Elizabeth Pelton, Willa Wang, Natalie Beale and Camryne Morris put together a 7:13.03 for the 15-18 U.S. National Age Group record in the event.
That’s the fifth National Age Group record for Nation’s Capital this meet already.
