We are very blessed to land an SEC/ACC type talent here ay DS.”

While at North Springs she has been coached by Patty Carroll and Olympic gold medalist Antonio McCay. 

“Dalton State is getting a great one,” Coach Carroll said of the heavily recruited runner. “Kuersten is a very hard worker. More importantly, she is a great person and student.”

Coach McKay agreed. “Kuersten is beginning to realize what it is to race,” the Olympian said. “Things have really started to click for her and she has a great future ahead.”
