Krista was probably the most talented player I ever coached; everything seemed to come naturally to her: she could score long tries on speed or elusiveness, and short tries on power. She set up tries brilliantly and then just put teammates away. Defensively she just crushed people; I was in awe watching her one-on-one defensive play. But on top of that athletic talent she was always thinking and innovating. (Emil Signes)
