Rated as high as #14 in the country by one scouting service, Kurz projects as a small forward at the collegiate level. Standing 6-foot-1 she has been described as a combination forward who excels on the wing thanks to an above average handle for a small forward. She also utilizes her height very well against smaller opponents and possesses above average fundamentals.
Her career at Germantown has already been quite decorated. As a junior she joined the 1,000 points scored club for the Patriots on the way to averaging 25 points, 11 rebounds, and four steals per game while shooting a sizzling 61% from the field.
To date she has accumulated a number of honors in the media including being named a member of Student Sports Junior All-America Team, a Nike All-America Camp invitee (2001, 2002), a member USA Today Junior All-America team and a USA Today Freshman All-American. Kurz has also earned Street & Smith All-America honorable mention (2001, 2002), and AP Class A All-State First Team (2003) honors.
