FEDERAL WAY – Bindi Pedersen swam to second- and fifth-place finishes in her two races at the 3A State Meet Saturday at the King County Aquatic Center.

Her times of 2 minutes, 7.35 seconds was an amazing two seconds behind state champion Yanran Le of Squalicum. Pedersen was four seconds in front of the third-place finisher.
