The final place of Republic senior Bryce Martin in the 100-yard backstroke at the Class 1 state swim championship at St. Peters. Martin finished his final race as a Republic Tiger with a time of 56.96, placing 13th in the state. That was not as fast as his school-record time achieved earlier this season, but it was .25 seconds faster than his time in the prelims, which qualified him for finals.
