Ziegler Downs Another Evans American Record, Breaks 1650 Yard Free Standard

FAIRFAX, Virginia, December 8. ACCORDING to news out of George Mason University, distance superstar Kate Ziegler took down Janet Evans' 1650-yard freestyle American record last night at the Tom Dolan Invitational.

Ziegler hit the wall in 15:37.17, eclipsing the previous 16-year-old standard of 15:39.14 set by Janet Evans on March 17, 1990 in Austin, Texas at the NCAA Championships. The time also set the 17-18 National Age Group and U.S. Open record.
