South Florida Aquatic Club will be well-represented at the 8-and-Under Sunrise Sizzler Friday at the Sunrise Civic Center pool.

Seventeen boys and girls will compete in all four stroke races and relay. The meet begins 5:30 p.m.

Luciano Del Carpio, 8, and Jong Woo Lee, 8, will be making their sizzler debut. Both will be looking for seed times in the boys’ 7-8 25-yard butterfly, 25-yard backstroke, 25-yard breaststroke and 25-yard freestyle.

Other SOFLO swimmers entered are Hailey Soyoung Ahn, 7; Kaitlyn Barrios, 8; Mariann Operana Catalasan, 8; Luna Delgado, 8; Fiorella Di Salvo, 6; Jeremi Johnson, 8; Maria Gloria Legaspi, 8; Farouk Musa, 6; Judith-Alison Natino, 8; Antonia Ortiz, 6; Leah Danielle Pando, 8; Erika Pelaez, 7; Daniel Antonio Ranaudo, 8; David Andres Ranaudo, 6; and Valerie Vank, 8.

Several SOFLO swimmers are coming off last month’s Sunrise Sizzler. Pelaez and Musa, making his debut, were four-for-four in their individual events.

The Sizzler events are both educational and fun. It gives swimmers and coaches an opportunity to gauge their progress in workouts and correct stroke technique. It’s also a great chance to socialize and meet other swimmers from around the Florida Gold Coast.
