Ljone will assist the Rams as the primary strength and conditioning coach for the cross country team, as well as for the middle distance and distance runners on the track squad.
The first-year coach comes to Colorado State after serving seven seasons as head coach of the women’s swimming program at the University of New Mexico. During her tenure with the Lobos, Ljone’s teams broke 25 school records in addition to having 12 athletes selected as all-Mountain West. Prior to her work at New Mexico Ljone worked as a strength and conditioning coach at Georgia State University and Arizona State University.
Ljone earned her bachelors of science degree from the University of South Carolina in exercise science, a masters of science in sport management from Georgia Southern University and a Ph.D. in physical education, exercise and sport science from the University of New Mexico.
Kuehl also enters his first season at Colorado State where he will be designing and implementing the strength and conditioning programs for CSU’s sprinters, jumpers and throwers.
Prior to this season Kuehl worked as a graduate assistant at the University of Oklahoma. The majority of his duties involved developing programs for the track and field team.
Kuehl will be an exceptional asset to Colorado State’s throwers, as he was a five-time All-American at the University of Arizona (three times in the discus and twice in the shot put). In 2008 he acted as the alternate for the USA Olympic Team.
He earned his bachelors of science degree in physical education from the University of Arizona in 2007.
