Early life

Caquatto was born to Dave and Lin Caquatto on March 14, 1994. She began taking gymnastics classes at the age of 2, following in the footsteps of her older sister, Mackenzie.

Junior career

Caquatto's first national competition was the U.S. Classic in 2007, where she finished 19th in the all-around. At her last competition as a junior, the 2009 National Championships, she finished second in the all-around and on vault and placed in the top ten on the other events.

Senior career

A series of injuries kept Caquatto out of major competitions in 2010. The following year, she competed at the U.S. Classic and the National Championships, earning top ten placings. To avoid re-injuring her knee, she performed watered-down vaults, and the uneven bars became her strongest event.

Her first international assignment as a senior was the 2011 City of Jesolo Trophy in Italy, where she placed in the top ten on every event. Later that year, at the Pan American Games in Guadalajara, she helped the U.S. team win the gold medal and went on to win individual gold medals in the all-around and on the uneven bars.

College career

Caquatto joined the Florida Gators gymnastics team in the fall of 2012, joining her sister, Mackenzie. During her college career, she competed on vault, uneven bars, and floor exercise, and helped the Gators win NCAA national championship titles in 2013 and 2014.
