Swimmers across the area returned to the pool on Saturday for the first meets of the new summer season. Teams in the Montgomery County Swim League, Prince-Mont Swim League, Prince William Swim League, Colonial Swim League and Dominion Country Club League battled in opening-week contests.
In a new weekly feature, snapshots from a handful of those meets tell the story:
Tallyho's Phoebe Bacon, 8, captures the girls 8-and-under 25 back in Saturday's MCSL Division D meet against Hallowell. Bacon won all three of her individual events (25 back, 25 breast, 25 fly) in the Foxes's victory, posting league-best times in each.
