FEDERAL WAY, Washington — The Newport Swim Team youth club qualified four athletes to swim at the Northwest Age-Group Regional Championships, held March 16-19 at Weyerhaeuser King County Aquatic Center, and all made their individual marks on the meet that drew more than 750 athletes from 49 teams from Alaska, Washington, Idaho, Montana, Oregon and Hawaii.

Newport 13-year-old girls standout Ilona Weisz earned first-place medals in the 100- and 200-yard freestyle events, and broke an NST record previously held by Lauren Bobo-Shisler in the 200 free. Weisz, who just recently turned 13, also placed second in the 50 freestyle and sixth in the 100 butterfly.
