Jacob will compete in states as a member of 200 Yard Medley Relay and the 200 Yard Freestyle Relay teams. He will also compete individually in the 200 Yard Backstroke.

The 2013-2014 PIAA Swimming and Diving Championships will be held at the Kinney Natatorium on the campus of Bucknell University in Lewisburg. The Class AA competition begins Friday, March 14 and will continue into the next day.  To Jacob Ryan and his teammates we extend our heartiest congratulations and we wish them well in the upcoming competition!
