In her first season of competition at Pacific, Shahaf immediately vaulted herself to the top of the MPSF in the backstroke and butterfly events, earning First Team All-MPSF honors in both the 100 Fly and the 100 Back. Her 100 Fly time of 54.55 at the 2012 MPSF Championships was good for second and qualified her for the NCAA Championship meet. She earned four first-place finishes on the year and never finished outside of the top three in any regular season dual meet. Shahaf added a fifth-place finish in the 100 Back to her league championship resume, clocking in at 56.23. Along with her time in the 100 Fly, both marks were tops on the team and were good for seventh and second, respectively, amongst all MPSF swimmers. Outside of the pool, she was named to the MPSF All-Academic Team.
