Student-Athlete Profile

Kristina’s coach tells us how Kristina honors the game she plays by giving back to her community: “I have had personal experience with Kristina as she involved herself with the Temple Terrace Juniorettes. The organization’s mission is to introduce young women within the community to service above self. The opportunity to see first hand, Kristina assisting in organizing an Easter Egg Hunt for children in the community was both rewarding and gratifying to me. Giving of oneself to better the community in which one lives is a lesson in life that will stay with her throughout. Kristina takes a leadership position in both her club and school soccer team. The high school team skill set varies among the players. Kristina has the patience and ability to encourage other payers as they continue to learn the nuances of the game. In discussing this with Kristina, she presents that high school soccer is competitive, yet as a part of the school, there are “teachable moments” and getting practice to a "teachable level is important in improving the game for the team as a whole.”
