Kelsey Royalty has been a dependable go-to player for Fellowship Christian the last three years.

The junior post/wing player has averaged about 15 points a game to lead the Lady Paladins to a 9-3 overall record and 4-2 Region 6A (B) mark as of Monday.

Royalty has had a number of big games this season, scoring 25 points in Fellowship’s 56-34 victory over Galloway Nov. 22 as well as scoring 21 points and grabbing eight rebounds in the Lady Paladins 63-36 victory over Excel Christian Nov. 23.

“She’s pretty good at doing all facets of the basketball game for us,” Fellowship Christian coach Clay Price said.

“She does a nice job in all areas. She can shoot the ball, she can drive the basketball. Until this year, she’s been the point guard. This year, by moving her from the point guard has freed her up to get up and down the floor a little more. It’s one of the reasons she’s scoring at a better clip and one of the reasons we’re doing better.”

Royalty is also a softball standout at Fellowship and is being heavily recruited by colleges for that sport.
