The Stanford women's swimming and diving freshman broke Janet Hu's school record with a blistering 50.30 in the finals of the 100 fly. Huske reached the 'A' final with 52.20 in the prelims but lowered her time by nearly two seconds in the finals to finish 1.34 seconds ahead of second.
Huske was joined by Emma Wheal in the 'A' final – who finished fourth in 52.72. The former was also a member of Stanford's runner-up 200 medley relay team. She, Regan Smith, Zoe Bartel and Taylor Ruck finished second in an 'A' standard of 1:36.20.
In the 400 IM, Brooke Forde dropped a 4:03.72 in the finals to win the event by more than five seconds. The defending national champion in the event was a tenth of a second off an 'A' standard, and her time ranks as the fastest in the nation entering the weekend.
Forde was also a member of Stanford's dominant showing in the 800 free relay. The Cardinal won going away in a NCAA 'A' standard of 6:56.99, nearly seven seconds ahead of second-place NC State. Forde anchored the quartet of Huske, Regan Smith and Lillie Nordmann – the later three are all true freshmen.
