“She is a fabulous addition and a good find for our program,” said Meyers. 

“She recently excelled in a highly competitive sectional of north Atlanta schools to make it to state,” Meyers added. “Kuersten is definitely a difference maker and with our other top girls will help to propel our Dalton State program to national prominence. 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.”
