In our series of player profiles as we lead up to the 2018-2019 season next on our list is Kierra Winkeler a 5'9 guard from Breese Mater Dei. Kierra had a very good junior season that ended in her being named a 3rd Team IBCA 3A/4A selection. She averaged 14.3 points per game, almost 6 rebounds per game and 2.3 steals per game.

Kierra has prepared for her senior year by playing with the Blue Star Silvey team in the spring and summer while also having a successful June with her school team. The Mater Dei team only lost 1 game in June and Kierra felt they played very well in preparing for the upcoming year. She really enjoyed the time with her Blue Star team. Due to an injury and the usual vacation time of players the team spent a good part of the year very guard heavy and lacking true post players. This was a challenge but Kierra felt they worked very hard and played well together. She feels like that challenge and the tough competition they played will really help her in her basketball career. She really enjoyed the team trip to Louisville this summer. She loves the city and the
