Keep ballin’: MCHS Lady Raider Kyrsten Watts stays “Humble” on and off the court


Hey, Alexa, Play “Humble” by Lil Baby. This is junior Kyrsten Watts’s hype song on and off the court. Watts, MCHS small forwards, is an exceptional basketball player and has played almost her whole life. She says “I became passionate about basketball from a young age just from all the fun and friends I have made.” Watts loves her team and is always trying to encourage herself and the team to be better. Her definition of a team is “having chemistry with each other and understanding one another in different ways, because in order to succeed and having faith in each other is the key to winning.” She also says teamwork is very important to her because “You spend the most time with them. We put together all of our skills, as well as trust, to help us win each game.” Watts has had so many great memories with the Madison County Lady Raiders but her all time favorite was “experiencing State for the first time just to get to feel the atmosphere has truly changed the game for me.”  Watts strives to be a great person through everything she does; this is evident to everyone she meets, whether in class or on the court. She says basketball helps her by “maintaining my good character and personality and showing my team, and others, who I represent.” Watts has made many great bonds throughout her years of playing basketball. She is immensely thankful for all the bonds built with coaches and teammates. Coach of the Lady Raiders Basketball Team, Dan Lampe, says “Kyrsten is somebody that can fit into any position on the court, she is reliable and always has a big smile.” She would like to encourage you all to “Go after it. This is an experience that is life changing. It is fun, but the biggest thing is having love for the game!”  Kyrsten Watts brings a lot to the table as a player and person; she is just a genuine soul. Keep Ballin’.
