She was second on the team in scoring, second in 3-point percentage, third in total rebounds, second in assists, first in steals, and second in blocks. She led her team in scoring for nine games and posted a career-best 19 points against Jenks.

She was named the FVC Defensive Player of the Year and made the FVC All-Conference Second Team and Bishop Kelley All-Tournament Team.

The Tulsa Hurricane went 10-21 in the 2016-2017 season and finished ninth the American Athletic Conference standings. They are led by seventh-year Head Coach Matilda Mossman. Mossman holds a career record of 232-197 as a Division I Head Coach, and went 191-53 as a High School Head Coach in Norman.

This is her first Head Coaching position.

Last week Kersgieter received an offer from Oklahoma State University. The Cowgirls went 17-15 this past season and finished seventh in the Big 12 Conference. OSU is coached by Jim Littell, in his seventh year at the helm. He holds an all time Head Coaching record of 737-171.
