ORLANDO – The national age group record onslaught continues on day two at the 2015 NCSA junior nationals. With the meet being swum in a short course yards prelims/long course finals format, many athletes are putting together top swims in the morning to post lifetime bests. That was true in the women’s 100 breaststroke, where 14-year-old Alexis Wenger nearly broke the 1:00 barrier on the way to lowering her own U.S. national age group record.

Wenger, swimming in the 24th of 25 heats, posted a 1:00.02 to beat the 1:00.75 she swum for the record just last month at the Michigan Open championships. Now representing Grosse Pointe Gators, Wenger will be the top seed for tonight’s long course finals, where she’ll look to lower her personal best of 1:12.84. For the record, Amanda Beard owns the 13-14 national age group record for the long course 100 breast with a 1:08.09 from 1996.
