Kyah Keller-Smith, daughter of Lori Keller and Kenny Smith, is our Jet’s Pizza Female Athlete of the Week.
She is a junior at Battle Ground Academy and a member of the varsity girls basketball team. She plays the position of post.
She has a career high of 26 points and was also selected for the All-District Basketball Team and the All-District Basketball Tournament Team.
Keller-Smith said she started playing sports at a very young age and loved basketball from the start.
One of her biggest role models and inspirations is her grandfather. She said that she “always looked up to him.”
“He’s been a huge part of my life and I want to make him happy,” she said.
When asked what inspires her to train and compete she said, “I want to be successful and I have to prepare for college where I’ll be pushed harder and placed with athletes better than me.”
After graduating from BGA next year, she said she would like to attend Clemson University to play softball.
