Sheridan distance runner Kate Turpin won't be going very far to continue her athletic career as she has signed with Black Hills State in Spearfish, South Dakota. Turpin has three top 10 finishes at the 4A State Cross Country Meet. As a junior in 2020, she took 5th with a time of 18.53.67, as a sophomore, she completed the course in 20.04.49 to take 9th and, as a freshman in 2018 she placed 7th in 19.14.87. That kind of effort earned her all-state status in all three of those years.

In the 2021 indoor track season, Turpin placed 7th at the State Championships in Gillette in the 1600 and 8th in the 3200-meter run. In the 2020 indoor season, her 4x800 relay team placed 6th at state. In the 2019 outdoor state championships in Casper, she placed 6th in the 3200 meters, 10th in the 800, and 12th in 1600.

Black Hills State is a Division II institution that competes in the Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference.
