“Iron Tiger” Kristi Lopez is feasting on victories as Leander ISD Student-Athlete of the Week! 

The Leander Middle School eighth-grader earned the distinction “Iron Tiger” for participating in FIVE sports! Kristi ran cross country, played volleyball and basketball, and ran track. During the latter, she won a bronze medal in both the 1600m and 2400m runs. Currently, Kristi is playing soccer. She can’t stop, won’t stop there. In her studies, Kristi is taking Algebra I, Advanced Social Studies and Spanish. She plans to participate in the IB program in high school. 

“What sets Kristi apart in athletics is her unwavering positivity, excitement, and happiness. She makes any room brighter and every practice better!” Leander Middle School Girls Athletic Coordinator Amanda Ellerbee said. “She is a joy to coach, and makes everyone around her better.”

For her winning ways, we salute #1LISD Student-Athlete of the Week Kristi Lopez!
