"This girl can literally fly. Well at least some of the furthest distances a high school girl ever has in the long and triple jump during state track and field history. Dual golds in the Long and Triple Jump at Sectionals, Groups, AND MEET OF CHAMPIONS. National Champ in the Triple Jump with a state record and US season leading 43-9.25, National runner up in the long jump with a 20-6 and currently holds the US#3 spot with a 20-7.35 mark she leapt at World Youth Trials. Qualified in both the Long and Triple for World Youth Championships (**Which is written about above, she kicked butt with another State Record of 44-11!). Countless victories and records all season putting the jumps in the media spotlight, and New Jersey jumping on the map. Hats off to you Keturah congratulations on everything you accomplished this season and on being the Top Jumper on NJRunners' NJTough Team."
