She won the 100-yard breaststroke in a time of 1:06.39 which is first in the UAA and eighth nationally. In the 200-yard breaststroke, she just missed a pool record when she was out-touched by Washington and Lee's Emily Hageboeck by two tenths of a second. Her time of 2:21.93 is also first in the UAA and is fifth nationally.
