A touch of flu kept Jennifer Parmenter out of the pool and home in bed Friday during the Janet Evans Invitational swim meet at USC. Yet, like a fish, Parmenter had to get back in the water. Parmenter, 17, a seven-time U.S. champion from Granada Hills, returned Saturday but placed a disappointing fifth in the women's 400-meter individual medley in the final day of the three-day meet at McDonald's Swim Stadium.

Amy Jones of Cleveland High didn't end up on the winner's platform Friday in the Janet Evans Invitational at USC, but she's a big winner just the same. Jones, swimming for Canyons Aquatics, swam a 58.13 in the consolation final of the 100-meter freestyle to qualify for the Senior Nationals in Clovis in two weeks. "I think she's still a little in shock," Coach Bruce Patmos said. "I don't think she thought she could do it."

The Royal Invitational was part of a new beginning, and a new challenge, for Jennifer Parmenter. After barely missing a spot on the United States Olympic swimming team at the trials last month, the L.A. Baptist freshman took some time off and two weeks ago switched from Canyons Swim Club to Rose Bowl Aquatics. Parmenter would not say why she changed, but said she feels happy and comfortable in her new environment.

How good is Jennifer Parmenter of L.A. Baptist High? So good even Olympic gold medal winners are ducking her. At the Southern Section Division I finals last month, Amanda Beard of Irvine didn't swim in one of her best events--the 200-yard individual medley--because of Parmenter's presence. "There was no way Amanda could beat Jennifer," Irvine Coach Scott Hinman told a reporter from The Times.

Jennifer Parmenter has always been ahead of schedule. But four full years? Maybe. Whether she is that far up on the pace will be determined during the next seven days at the U.S. Swimming Olympic trials in Indianapolis. Parmenter, a Los Angeles Baptist High freshman, has for several years been training with the 2000 Olympics in Sydney, Australia, on her mind.

Jennifer Parmenter surprised the swimming world during the Phillips 66 National Swimming Championship last March, winning the 200- and 400-meter individual medleys. Some swimming critics called the Granada Hills teen-ager's success a fluke, pointing to the fact most of the elite swimmers were either competing at the NCAA championships or the Pan American Games. Parmenter, who swims for the Canyon Country Swim Team, which works out at College of the Canyons, swam the 200 in 2 minutes 17.
