A versatile swimmer, Cuevas does her club swimming with Hopkins Mariner Swim Team and earned a best time at Connecticut Seniors in February 2020 after posting a trio of top-20 finishes at the Age Group Qualifier. In 2019, she finaled in the 200m breast at the Southern Zone South Sectional Championships.

Her best times include:

Also competing for Sacred Heart Academy, Cuevas placed third in the 500 free and sixth in the 100 breast at the CIAC Class M Championships as a junior.

Cuevas will add valuable depth in a number of events when she arrives at Grinnell as a member of the Class of 2025. Under head coach Erin Hurley, the Pioneers finished second overall in the team standings at the 2020 Midwest Conference Championships.
