She also takes over the tenth spot in both the 100-fly and 200-fly, with times of 1:00.00 and 2:15.53, respectively. Those were all the fastest times on the squad, as well. In the 100-free, she posted the fourth-best time on the team, going 55.49. Her time of 5:42.41 in the 500-free was fifth-fastest for the Crusaders, while her 200-free time of 2:05.72 was sixth. At the Horizon League Championships, she contributed to four different relays. Swimming the fly leg, she helped the 200-medley relay compile a time of 1:47.10, moving it into third-best all-time in Valpo history. The 200-free relay went 1:38.10, which is now fourth-fastest all-time. With a combined time of 4:01.50, she helped move the 400-medley relay into fifth all-time by swimming the fly leg.
