"North Whidbey Aquatic Club member Missy McIntyre is one of 12 girl swimmers representing the Pacific Northwest Swimming in the 13-14 age category at the 2000 Western Zone Championships, currently underway in Fresno, Calif. There are teams from 13 Western states competing. McIntyre, in her first competition as a 13 year old, automatically qualified for the PNS team by swimming a personal best in the 100 meter breaststroke (1:17.38) in last month's Senior Regional Swimming Championships in Federal Way. McIntyre practiced with the Pacific Northwest team last week in Federal Way to prepare for the competition, which started in Fresno on Tuesday and continues through Saturday.For more on the Pacific Northwest Swimming team, visit the Web site www.pns.org.
