Kelsey is a two-sport athlete at LCCC, competing in cross-country and basketball for the Commodores. During high school, she earned nine varsity letters in basketball, soccer, and track. She served as team captain in both soccer and track. Kelsey also played travel soccer for TCFC, but never ran cross-country, so this was her first season competing in the sport. Winning two District Championships with her Avon soccer teams are her favorite sports memories. Kelsey set the pace for the Lady Commodore cross country team throughout the season including at the 2019 NJCAA Division III National Cross Country Championships, earning NJCAA DIII All-American honors with her 15th place finish, and leading the team to a 9th place finish, with a of 20:48 over the 5K course.  Kelsey also led the LCCC team at the 2019 NJCAA DIII Region XII Championship, finishing second in the meet to earn an All-Region team nod with a season best time of  20:36.  Earlier in the season, Kelsey was selected as the NJCAA Division III Runner of the Week in just the second race of her career. An outstanding student, Kelsey graduated high school with a 3.9 GPA and plans to attend a four-year university to complete her degree in Biology.
