Last summer, she recorded four lifetime bests at the NBAC LCM Championships before going on to final in three events at Geneva Futures. She has also earned USA Swimming Scholastic All-American honors for her efforts.


A talented breaststroker, Platt is a Futures qualifier and does her club swimming with Fort Wayne Swim Team.  She raced to eighth in the 100 breast at Indiana Seniors and finaled in the 100m breast at Indianapolis Sectionals in 2019.
