Kegerreis Named SoCon Player of the Week
“Kristi has been a great contributor to this program for going on four years now,” said head coach Amy Bonner. “Kristi has been a leader for our team on and off the court and it’s so great that she is being recognized for it. Our team looks up to her and its so rewarding to see a senior have such a great weekend of competition.”
