Spencer Girls Swimming's Taylor Sieperda turned in two of her best times Saturday at the regional swim meet in Fort Dodge, qualifying her for the state meet for the second-consecutive year. Sieperda, a sophomore, set personal-bests and school records in the 50 free (23.91) and 100 backstroke (57.84) to advance to this Saturday's meet in Marshalltown.
Sieperda's time in the 50 free is second-fastest in qualifying times across the state. Her 100 back is the fastest, over a half-second faster than Sara Bentley of Ames (58.39).
Spencer's 200-yard freestyle relay also is heading to state for the second-consecutive year, and also improved on its school-record. Sieperda, Cassidy Fox, Abby Goodenow and Emma Dau turned in a time of 1:42.85 to qualify with the 17th-fastest time.
