When Bella was starting middle school, her sister Lysette was starting at BK as a Freshman. Their parents moved Bella to St. Joe’s that year, so that she could have a Catholic school experience, and make some friends before heading to BK. When it was time for Bella to start high school she was excited to attend Bishop Kelly, because she saw how it shaped her sister into a leader, and how well Lysette was prepared for college. Now, as a Senior, Bella has made her mark at Bishop Kelly. Bella runs Cross Country, and plays Basketball and Softball at BK. For the last two years she has been an important member of the State Champion Varsity Softball Team, and she’s hoping for a repeat of that success this spring. Bella recently signed to play softball at the College of Idaho next year - Go Yotes!
Bella loves her ceramics class and all the friends she has made here at BK. Like most seniors, Bella’s biggest challenge is balancing athletics, time with her amazing friends, and being dedicated to her studies. With support and encouragement from teachers and coaches, Bella is juggling her busy schedule just fine.
One special coach made an impression on Bella that will stay with her forever. Coach Larry Crump Senior was part of the BK Basketball family for 35 years. He rarely missed a game, even while undergoing treatment for cancer. He lost his battle toward the end of the 2019 season, but not before helping Bella find her motivation and purpose on the court. “Without Coach Crump my game wouldn’t look the same. My shot would not be the way it is today.” Coaches and teachers like Coach Crump are one of the many things Bella loves about BK, and her successes on the court and field are just a few of the MANY things BK loves about Bella!
