Carsten Vissering cracks 53, snags NAG in 100 Breast at NCSAs

Carsten Vissering is one of a number of high school age breaststrokers trading blows across the country this year. Vissering rattled the national independent high school record in the 100 breast at 53.49 back in February, but since then was leapfrogged by Andrew Seliskar and Jacob Molacek as Seliskar took down the overall high school record and then Molacek bettered that with the first 52-second swim of the bunch.

But now Vissering has hit back, going 52.83 to break the 15-16 National Age Group record while winning the NCSA Junior National title.

Vissering was out in 24.84 and came home in 27.99 to beat out a tough field and break the NAG record Seliskar set last year at 53.26.
