Eight girls from Lakewood Ranch finished in the top 12 at a youth triathlon at Trinity YMCA Oct. 3.
Elise Skoumal, 5, and Sophia Stock, 6, each completed a race that included a 25-yard swim, a one-mile bike ride and a one-quarter-mile run.
Sydney Cusick and Anna Stock (both 8), Amelia Skoumal, 7, and Chloe Millard, 9, swam 100 yards, biked two miles and ran for one-half mile.
Finally Emma Stock, 11, and Zaya Pelusi, 12, competed in a race that included a 200-yard swim, a four-mile bike ride and a one-mile run.
Sophia Stock, Millard and Pelusi all took second place in their age groups.
