Breaking News: Glendora’s Gretchen Jaques breaks Janet Evans’ 1989 record in 200 medley

Glendora junior Gretchen Jaques broke a record at Friday’s CIF-SS Division II prelims at the Belmont Plaza pool that she won’t soon forget. Jaques’ winning qualifying mark of 1:59:00 in the 200 individual medley broke U.S. Olympian Janet Evans’ 1989 record of 1:59.96 that she set with El Dorado High School. Evans is arguably the most celebrated U.S. women’s swimmer ever. Jaques, who entered the race with a qualifying mark of 2:04.06, shattered her personal best and will compete for the title on Saturday.
More breaking News: Jaques also set a record in the 100 breaststroke, winning in 1:01.03, breaking the Div. II meet record of 1:01.96, set in 2008 by Hart’s Jordan Danny.
