When qualifying for the NCAA Championships Peters was a “bubble” qualifier, and just sneaked into the top 39 200 butterfliers in the nation. She made it count though because Georgia won its second consecutive national title. She finished 55th in the 100 butterfly and 35th in the 200. Peters was also chosen as a Scholar All-American by the College Swimming Coaches Association of America.
