Kelly Huffer and Olivia Tungate, eighth-graders at Oak Harbor Middle School, have been selected to attend the USA Swimming Zone Select Camp in Tempe, Arizona, May 29-June 1.

Only 112 swimmers from across the United States in the 12-13 age division are selected for the regional camps, 28 for each of the four zones.

The Western Zone in Tempe encompasses 12 western states.

Huffer swims for the Bellingham Bay Swim Team and Tungate for the North Whidbey Aquatic Club.

Swimmers are selected based on 2013 long course meters IMX points scores, as well as those who have recorded the fastest time in each long course Olympic event.
