Future Stanford Cardinal Janet Hu broke former Stanford Cardinal Elaine Breeden‘s National Age Group record in what’s been a devastating night for the record books at NCSA Junior Nationals.
Hu went 1:52.92 to clip .07 off of Breeden’s 2007 mark, the second Stanford commit to break a NAG tonight. (Simone Manuel took care of the 100 free mark earlier in the meet).
The 18-year-old Hu blazed to a big front half, going 53.67 on the way out. Her splits dropped off some from there, but the damage was already done as Hu went 59.25 in the second 100 to put another NCAP-er in the national record books.
Hu’s is one of five NAGs to go down on night 2 of NCSAs, joining Manuel, Alexis Wenger, Carsten Vissering and Michael Andrew.
