The "Cobra Spotlight" is a weekly highlight of a student-athlete at Coker College. Each week we take a different athlete from a different sport and display some facets to get more familiar with them. This week we take a look at Kirsten Sanders, a member of the women's cross country and women's soccer teams.

Why did you choose Coker? I really liked the dance program here. Also, it is a liberal arts college and the size of the college really attracted me too.
