WCW: Gamecock Swimming's Kersten Dirrane
Columbia, SC (WACH)- The Good Day Columbia team celebrates women in sports every week through the "Woman Crush Wednesday" segment. This week the crew got to know Kersten Dirrane of Gamecock Swimming.
The Rumney New Hampshire native swims the 100 and 200 meter breaststroke and is currently getting ready for the Women's NCAA Championships in Indianapolis from March 15th-18th.
Dirrane is a public health major and says she found swimming through her dad. He coached her when she was little and throughout her High School years. She admits the distance has been hard now that she's in college but she's happy he's just a phone call a way.
She also came very close to making the Olympic squad last year and feels she learned a lot of valuable lessons at the Olympic Qualifiers.
