Kickin’ It With Krohn

Jacqueline Buda

Twenty-year-old Cal State Northridge soccer player Kristy Krohn has managed to successfully juggle school with sport. Despite a strained hamstring injury that occurred early this season, she has maintained her midfield starting position and contributed to several winning goals this year. The California native has played for a couple of club soccer teams, including West LA Samba and Southern California United. Her 15 years of soccer-playing experience have exemplified her dedication to the sport.

Last season, Krohn started in 16 matches and tied for the team lead with nine goals. She also equaled the Northridge single-season record in goals and is second on the list for total points. As an athlete, Krohn has chosen Kinesiology for her major. Her studies focus on gaining knowledge of the physiological processes and anatomy of the human body.

The ability to excel in a division one sport and produce above average grades is not an easy task. Krohn utilizes her time efficiently by bringing flashcards to the training room and attending study hall. Although most of her time is devoted to team practices and treating her injury, Krohn still finds time to relax and hang out with friends.
