Krista McCartney is a junior and member of the girls basketball team.

Krista has participated in basketball for eight years. “I am a shooting guard and point guard,” answered Krista when asked about her positions. She is inspired by her good friend, Kayla Yorko.

For many people, a jersey number means something special.  For Krista, her number is special because it was her uncle’s favorite number.
