Kingston High’s Tay­lor Robey qual­i­fied for the state swim meet Satur­day af­ter win­ning the 100-yard freestyle at the Sec­tion 9 swim qual­i­fy­ing meet at Val­ley Cen­tral.

The se­nior will close out her ca­reer at the New York State Pub­lic High School Ath­letic As­so­ci­a­tion meet Nov. 18-19 at Ithaca Col­lege. She slashed more than a quar­ter of a sec­ond off her time and met the state cut with a 54.34 in Thurs­day’s pre­lim­i­nar­ies, then took an­other sec­ond off with a 53.37 to win the event Satur­day.

Robey nearly made it in the 50free. She hadn’t made the state stan­dard, but was out-touched by New Paltz’s Abi­gail San­tos and placed sec­ond eight-hun­dreths of a sec­ond (24.93-25.01) be­hind.

San­tos had a big day for New Paltz. She also won the but­ter­fly (58.77) and also made states in the 200 med­ley re­lay (sec­ond, 1:51.66) with Bella and Kaela San­tos plus Mor­gane Kuyl, plus the 200 free re­lay (third, 1:41.68) with the same trio.

Kuyl qual­i­fied for a third event, mak­ing the cut with a sec­ond-place 54.17 in the 100-free be­hind Robey.

Roo­sevelt’s ju­nior Am­ber Diehl also qual­i­fied for states, win­ning the breast­stroke with a 1:05.95.
