    Kristina Baskett is amazing. She is one of the best collegiate gymnasts in the country. She has a lovely, grace, and elegance about her, with no lack of power.
    An incredible vault, with great height. A smooth, flowing beam, with clean lines. A compelling floor exercise she seems to enjoy. Which has entertaining dance moves, especially the awesome, one hand, break-dance deal. Not forgetting the commanding passes, also with impressive height. Finally a precise bar routine, dismounting with an exceptional double layout.
    It's hard not to notice when Kristina hits a routine. She passionately throws her head back, stretches her arms high, and occasionally pokes her tongue out slightly.
    Kristina is an excellent roll model for young girls, such as Mr. Dent's daughter. She has the exemplary grades to prove it. (4.0 fall semester)
    I am sure anyone who knows Kristina (I do not) would agree. Kristina is a bright, charismatic, absolutely genuine women with a captivating smile that lights up the Huntsman Center.
    And she wakeboards!

    Our wonderful Kristina!!
    She has made a believer out of our family, especially our little Brielle! It seems night after night at our house Brielle starts off in the line-up of being Queeny, who we dearly miss watching, and then she goes from Daria, to Nina, Ashley, Stephanie, Jessica, Kristina, Beth, Annie, Jaime, Jaqulyn, pretending to be all these wonderful girls!! She always makes sure that she immitates Kristina at least 20 times a night. Kristina's genuine smile and her happy reaction after she has stuck a landing or did a darn good routine, draws you to watch her every move. Ever graceful, ever wonderful. We love you Kristina!! Keep up the good work. We are so thankful that you came to the University of Utah to share your wonderful talents with us!!! All the best to you!!
