Kelleher competed at the NCAA D-III Indoor Championships in the 400 in 2002 (fourth), 2003 (sixth), and 2004 (fourth), earning All-America accolades in each appearance. She also took eighth in 2002 and fifth in 2003 at the NCAA Outdoor Championships for two more All-America finishes.

Additionally, Kelleher had 15 goals and six assists in four seasons of women’s soccer. She twice earned Empire 8 Conference Second Team honors and helped the Hawks to the 2003 NYSWCAA Championship.
