Boyd McWhorter Scholar-Athlete of the Year. Seidt won gold at the 2019 Phillips 66 National Championships in the 200 backstroke and was part of the 400 medley relay team that captured the silver medal at the event. At the 2019 NCAA Swimming and Diving Championships, she was awarded the NCAA's Elite 90 Award. Seidt is a four-time NCAA qualifier. The 2019 SEC Scholar-Athlete of the Year, Seidt won the SEC Championship in the 200 backstroke in 2017, 2018 and 2019.
