South Florida Aquatic Club age group swimmers are learning their lessons well at Academic Village Pool.

Some swimmers improved at least one of their lifetime best times during Friday’s Sunrise 8-and-Under Sizzler at Sunrise Civic Center. Most were making their swim meet debut.

Six-year-old Erika Pelaez led SOFLO/Comets during the age group meet with four wins and two best times.

Pelaez won the 25-yard butterfly in a best time 18.74 dropping from 20.29; 25-yard backstroke in a best time 19.96, dropping from 20.26; 25-yard breaststroke in 25.47 and 25-yard freestyle in 17.72.

Randy Smith, 8, of the Comets won the 25-yard backstroke in 20.46. Smith was also second in the 25-yard freestyle in 18.19, fourth in the 25-yard breaststroke in 24.15 and fifth in the 25-yard butterfly in 22.48.
