A the 1959 Pan American Games in Chicago, she won three medals, including a gold as a member of the winning U.S. team in the women's 4×100-meter freestyle relay. Individually, she also received a silver for her second-place finish in the 100-meter freestyle, and a bronze for a third-place performance in the 100-meter butterfly.
Botkin also represented the United States as a sixteen-year-old at the 1960 Summer Olympics in Rome, where she swam for the gold medal-winning U.S. team in the preliminary heats of the women's 4×100-meter freestyle relay. She did not receive a medal, however, because only relay swimmers who competed in the event final were medal-eligible under the 1960 Olympic rules.
