“I choose Towson University because of the great team atmosphere and how welcomed they made me feel. Right when i stepped on campus I knew this was the right place for me! GO TIGERS!!”

A senior at Ronald Reagan High School, Plasser specializes in sprint free. As a sophomore at the 2017 North Carolina 4A State Championships she placed 11th in the 50 free and swam on all three of Reagan’s relays. As a junior she competed in both the 50 free and 100 free and led off both the 200 free relay and 400 free relay. Plasser swims year-round for Enfinity Aquatic Club.
