A senior at Rosary Academy, Kate Goostrey is a shooting guard for the Royals and enjoys creating opportunities for her teammates to be successful. As a captain, she is growing into her leadership role while working on her on-court decision-making.
“Kate is one of the hardest working athletes I’ve ever coached,” says Rosary basketball head coach, Richard Yoon. “Her determination and relentless effort towards accomplishing her goals sets her apart from the rest. On the court, Kate never seems to run out of energy. What she lacks in skill, she makes up for with heart and desire. Kate is constantly working on her game, shooting before school starts and the last to leave the practice. She leads by example, willing to do the little things in order to win big games. Kate is highly driven to succeed in all her endeavors and has the potential to be one of the greatest players in Rosary basketball history.”
Goostrey was just a freshman when Rosary won the 2017 CIF State Championship, the first state title in school history. They won a second State Championship last season. A key component of both championship runs, Kate has found great pride in representing her high school through sports.
