“Kelsi gives our team a major threat on offense and defense,” head coach Kelly Nye-Hinkson said. “She’s a quiet leader and brings a true passion for the game of basketball.”
Fizer, who has been a member of the Spartans’ youth program since sixth grade, credits coaches and upperclassmen teammates for her success.
“I’ve been improving since the beginning of the season and we’ve focused on bonding as a team while always supporting each other,” Fizer said. “My teammates have taken me in and helped me a lot.”
Fizer is a member of the Douglasville Lady Tigers AAU team based in Douglas County and plans to play volleyball next season for South Paulding.
She will also join the Fellowship of Christian Athletes program and pursue a career in the medical field, preferably in physical therapy to assist others in need.
The Spartans return to action on Friday against Villa Rica.
