The Elliot Lake Aquatics Club began its swim season with PB&J –that is personal bests and joy at the Sault Surge Pentathlon held last weekend.

Club publicist, Tania Beaulieu says the club was well represented by 19 local swimmers.

She says several were on the podium and the club is off to a great seasonal start.

Ava Young earned a podium finish in each of her events, including an 11.14-sec improvement from her PB (personal best) in the 200m Individual medley. Overall, Young saw six top-spot finishes over the weekend.

Beaulieu adds as this event was the first of the season, personal bests were abundant.
Ally Weller swam to many top finishes including a first place for her 25m breast and fly events. All personal bests were seen for her efforts in each of her five events.

Carter Abercrombie was a crowd favorite at just nine-years-old. He consistently proved his skill finishing each of his swims ahead of his competitors including a first-place finish for his 25m Freestyle.

Carter Smith proved his determination and drive-by earning a third place for his 25m freestyle and 25m breaststroke swims.

Ethan Young recognized his potential combining his strokes to a PB finish in his 200 Medley, shaving 20 seconds off his previous time.
