The Tyrone quartet of Jacob Decker, Matt Lenze, Songmian Wang, and Parker Bayard swam in the 200 medley relay on Wednesday at the PIAA Swimming and Diving Championships at Bucknell University.

The team finished in 32nd place in the AA event with a time of 1:49.55.

“Our relay team swam well, but gained some time against the best teams in the state,” said Tyrone head coach Tom Getz. “It seemed that some of them were a bit tired from some tough swims the last few weekends. That being said, I am so proud of these boys. They set a great foundation for the expectations for next year’s team.”

The team swam in the only event that Tyrone qualified for at the state meet, marking the end of the season.
