Results of the overall leaders and District 10 entrants from Thursday’s PIAA Class AA swimming and diving meet at Bucknell University in Lewisburg. Because the media center isn’t immediately adjacent to Kinney Natatorium, updates will only be provided at the end of each session. However, if a district entrant finishes first or second, an attempt will be made to post that result as soon as possible.
