LEWISBURG — With time running out on their high school swimming careers, the Upper Perkiomen seniors came here determined to make the best of their last chance.

The 200 medley relay team of Kyle Himmelwright, Quinn Perlstein, Mason Cassel and Brandon Umstead finished third in the finals with a time of 1:38.64. It was the second straight bronze in the event for the Tribe at states, and set a new school record in the event.
