“I am excited to welcome Kenedie to Dordt College and our distance program. As shown by her 2014 state cross country meet, she is a talented runner that can impact our women’s team. Her experiences at Western Christian will help her as she transitions to college running. I look forward to working with her and watching her grow and develop during her time at Dordt College,” said head coach Nate Wolf.
