“When it comes to facing adversity nobody may know it better than Kelsey but that did not stop her from chasing and achieving her goal of running in college.  We have had the pleasure of training her for the past 4 years.  She has trusted in our process and with her “effort never dies” attitude she has gone on to break four school records before taking her athletic and academic career to Pittsburg State University.  Kelsey has so many reasons to be proud of herself and her accomplishments but she’s not one to rest on her laurels and think she’s achieved it all.  She’s hungry for more and I’m excited to see just how fast she’s going to get when she competes for the Gorillas.  We wish her nothing but the best!”
