Position: Assistant Coach - Sprints

This legendary Gaucho sprinter will be assisting Jenny Kenyon in coaching the sprints and the jumps. As a collegiate sprinter, Kylie's presence was unparalleled. Kylie owns the UCSB 200m dash record, with a blistering time of 23.81, a personal best that she set in the process of winning her second consecutive 200m Big West title. She also stands as the second all-time 400m runner in school history, with two back-to-back conference crowns in that event as well, and a personal best time of 54.11. Kylie was also a member of both the record-holding 4 x 100m and 4 x 400m relay teams that produced times of 46.42 and 3:44.77, respectively. Kylie will extend her role as a team leader in this, her first year as a coach, and she will look to transfer her flawless running form and impregnable competitiveness into the sprints and jumps squad. Kylie was awarded the prestigious honor of Big West Conference Athlete of the Year in 2005, and now looks to help guide her former running mates toward that same status.
