Siefert is a freestyler and a strong backstroker as well. He has Winter Juniors cuts in the 500 and 1000 freestyles.

At the 2016 Ohio High School State Championships, Siefert finished second in the 200 freestyle to Grant House who committed to ASU yesterday.

The Wildcat men finished ninth of ten teams at the 2016 SEC Championships. When he arrives in Lexington next fall Siefert will already have scoring potential. In the 500 freestyle Siefert would have finished in the scoring C final. Kentucky had two swimmers in the B final and two in the C final.
