#12 Christina Ray
Christina comes to us from University of Texas-El Paso where she played on a team that was 28-4 and lost in the NCAA D1 Sweet 16. Christina is a great athlete who can finish at the rim, rebound, and defend. She has played for great coaches at every level. She will have an immediate impact in our program. I am excited to have someone who fits in our program and at Union.
