Leddy capped her career off by competing in both the 100 and 200 back at the NCAA’s after winning her third career 200 back title at the Ivy League Championships. Leddy also placed third in the 100 back and fifth in the 200 IM at Ivies, and will graduate as the school record holder in both the 100 and 200 back.

Otto turned in an impressive showing at Nationals, placing 24th in the 200 fly, 30th in the 400 IM and 54th in the 500 free. She won both the 400 IM and the 800 free relay in her first appearance at Ivies, while placing second in the 500 free and 200 fly to earn a total of four All-Ivy selections.
