York signs with Spring Hill

Yorksaid she will mainly be a post player for the Badgers, but Spring Hill head coach Karen McConico knows she also has an outside game and could end up playing a position on the wing.

Proud coach

Crestview girls basketball coach Kathy Combest had several players sign scholarships when she coached at Baker School, but York is her first from Crestview.

"This is special because I've only had her for one year," Combest said. "Kerrie didn't have a lot of playing time until this year.

"When I talked to all of the coaches when they called me about her, I told them, 'She has a ton of potential. She just needs to get stronger. If she gets stronger, it's just going to enhance her potential and what she can do now.'"

York has all the intangibles a coach seeks in a player, Combest said. She has great feet, she's smart and she has a good feel for the game.

"She's a little lanky now, but put a little meat on her from time in the weight room and her potential is unlimited," she said. "She shoots the 3-pointer. She shoots the jump shot, but she can also penetrate the lane in the paint."
