The senior won two individual events in meet-record time and helped two relays to victory in leading the Eagles to their eighth straight Interscholastic Athletic Association of Maryland A Conference swimming championship. Schaffer won the 200-yard individual medley (2 minutes, 3.82 seconds) for the fourth straight year and finished first in the 100 breaststroke (1:04.42). She also swam the backstroke leg of the 200 medley relay and anchored the 200 freestyle relay.
