Farmington's Aaron Lane is an up-and-coming pentathleteAaron Lane has spent the last seven months honing his skills in all the disciplines required of a 19th-century soldier. But the 16-year-old son of Bob and Bobbi Lane of Farmington isn’t some overly-dedicated Civil War reenactor. He’s a pentathlete.
