North Whidbey Aquatic Club’s Haley Borja polished off the 2016-17 swim season with a strong performance at the Western Age Group Zone Championships Aug. 9-12 in Roseville, Calif.

Borja, 10, represented Pacific Northwest Swimming, the regional chapter of USA Swimming, at the star-studded meet.

“Many of the Western United States greatest age-group swimmers were on hand for what is annually one of the most competitive age-group swim meets in the world,” NWAC coach Dick Taylor said.

Borja, competing in the girls 10-and-under division, took 13th in the 100-meter freestyle and 14th in the 50 free.

Swimming on Pacific Northwest’s top relay squads, she helped her team take third in the 400 medley relay, fourth in the 200 free relay, fifth in the 200 medley relay and sixth in the 400 free relay.
