Defining Excellence: Kristine Yin

“Kristine defines excellence because of the way she has learned over the last couple of years. I think her challenging point was to depend on a coach too much as a crutch. We had to educate her that in an individual sport, like in college or if she tries to be a professional, there’s not always going to be a coach. She has to be autonomous and learn for herself and I think she embraced that.” – Kevin Smeltz, BGGA Director of Instruction
