Kala Funderburk

Winning from Lane 8. That is what Kala Funderburk did at the NCAA Championships her senior season with the Florida State Seminoles. She had first tasted success on the track at Lakewood High School in St. Petersburg, FL, earning accolades on both the local and state level. After two years at Memphis University, where she set the indoor and outdoor school records in the 400 meters, Kala transferred to Florida State University where she would earn a degree in International Affairs, and go on to become a National Champion.
