Danielle, a junior transfer from the University of Loughbourgh, will enter her first year as a Gamecock. One of the top middle distance runners in the world, she placed fourth at the World Junior Championships in 2004. Danielle enjoys running along the coast paths in her hometown of Newquay where she can see the beautiful sea for miles. Barring a reoccurrence of a foot injury that has bothered her for much of the past two years, Coach Rosenthal has high hopes that Danielle will be able to approach and surpass her times as a junior athlete.
Danielle's top three hobbies are running, watching movies and being with her dog. In the summer of 2008, she graduated and moved to the United States. Danielle was born to Alan and Yvonne Barnes.
