STORM LAKE -- Spencer's girls swim team headed south last Thursday, taking part in double dual action at Buena Vista University's Finkbine Pool against hosting Storm Lake and Algona.

The Tigers couldn't be stopped in the meet, winning eight of 11 events to beat the Tornadoes 55-39 and the Bulldogs 77-17.

Emma VerSteeg, Maddie DeWitt, NancyLynn Maris and Mady Sieperda started off the meet much like they have all season, winning the 200-yard medley relay.

Two races later DeWitt took gold in the 200-yard individual medley followed by a first place performance from Sieperda in the 50-yard freestyle.

Sieperda added another win in the 100-yard freestyle right before DeWitt took first in the 500-yard freestyle.

VerSteeg, Cassie Soma, DeWitt and Sieperda then claimed the 200-yard freestyle relay before VerSteeg won the 100-yard backstroke.

Maddy Button tacked on a win in the 100-yard breaststroke to finish out Spencer's wins.

The relay team of Sophie Endly, Jenna More, Soma and Carisa Doran came in second in the 400-yard freestyle relay.

Spencer's swimmers will travel to Carroll Thursday for their next double dual against the hosting Tigers and the Fort Dodge Dodgers.
