Extracting Data from Swim Meet PDF

I'm an undergraduate manager with Tennessee Swimming and Diving as well as a Business Analytics major at UT. I'm working on a data project with the team that involves comparing swim data with biometrics and other relevant data.

Currently I am working on the ability to extract information from a PDF results file and keep it in a data frame. I'm not entirely sure where to begin– I've used the PDFtools package and successfully split the data into different strings using stringr. Now I am trying to figure out the process for creating columns and getting the data into these columns.

Here is a link to the PDF I am working on. Any ideas?
