As as sophomore, Katharine was the first female Raider student-athlete in history to become All-State Champion and New England Champion (100 hurdles). 

As she enters her senior year, Katharine is being heavily recruited by several D1 Schools, including Duke, West Point, Cornell, Colorado State, Minnesota and UNH.

Congratulations, Katharine - we look forward to seeing what you will accomplish in your senior year and beyond!
