Kristen was an all-league performer in basketball and track during her high school years at Lyons Central and made second team in soccer her senior year. Her basketball accomplishments set the standard at Lyons where she graduated as the school’s all- time leading scorer with 1,187 career points. She was team MVP twice, was named first team all-league for three years and participated in the Ronald McDonald All Star game after her senior year. She was also named All-Greater Rochester Honorable Mention twice.
Her varsity career in track began as a seventh grader and ended with multiple all-league honors and five individual Section V class C Championships (two in the 400m, two in the 800m, and one 400m hurdles title). She was nicknamed “Most Outstanding Performer” during her junior and senior years. Kristin was a well-rounded student who was a member of National Honor Society, student council, chorus and participated in three musicals.
Following graduation, she headed to Guilford College in North Carolina where she played soccer and basketball and was named “Most Improved” in both after her freshman year. She played one more year of soccer but was the starting point guard for the basketball team all four years and still holds the school record for three-point percentage in a season.
