Brizard on Cambron: "We are looking for Kris to provide some depth and experience in the forward position. She is a crafty player who can exploit weak spots on any defense."

In 2010 (Sophomore): As a sophomore, Kris played in all 17 matches and started in 15 of those matches. She followed a strong freshman campaign with two goals in the fall of 2010 which came in back-to-back games against UNC Asheville on Sept. 5 and Georgia Southern on Sept. 10. It was her late goal that sealed a 3-1 victory over UNC Asheville, and her goal against Georgia Southern gave Tech a 1-0 advantage at the 59-minute mark of what would become a 2-0 victory, the second straight for TTU. In the summer of 2011, Kris played for Cincinnati’s Hammer FC of the Women’s Premier Soccer League.

In 2009 (Freshman): Kris was efficient in several facets of the game, as she appeared in 20 contests, making 16 starts. Her four goals ranked third on the squad, while her four assists led the entire team and was tied for second in the OVC. Scored the game-winning goal in two contests: versus UT Martin (9/25) and at Morehead State (11/6). Kris earned a few honors in November for her exceptional play including: OVC Co-freshman of the year, first-team all-OVC, and all-OVC newcomer team.

HIGH SCHOOL: As the 2008 Chattanooga Area Player of the Year, Kris has the ability to beat her defender 1-on-1, and has excellent skills with the ball. She was a two-time all-state selection, and team MVP in 2008 at Notre Dame in Chattanooga, leading her team to the state semi-finals four consecutive years.

CLUB/ODB EXPERIENCE: Kris played club soccer for ERSA Express ’91 and was on the Tennessee ODP state team in 2007 and 2008.
