Ravenwood High School junior Lexi McKay is a starter on the Lady Raptors varsity basketball team.
She has three mentors who have impacted her success, she says: “My coach Ron Brock for his confidence in me which really helps me believe in myself on the court (and he makes me laugh); my trainer/coach Ernesto Ramos for inspiring a love for the game and the importance of technique; and for my travel league coach Spencer Richardson for his support and helping me realize I can’t get away with 'just okay.' ”
Lexi hopes to study marketing/advertising in college and minor in psychology. At this time she does not know where she will be attending college, but is making visits.
Her parents are John and Kristina McKay.
Alexandra shares three fun facts about herself. “I love to write and have two stories published and am working on a third. One of my stories has been adapted to a screenplay and made into a short film that has been submitted and hopefully, will be accepted to the Nashville Film Festival.” Her second fun fact is “I won second in the nation at YBOA nationals my freshman year for free throws in my age division.” Lastly, her other fun fact is “I always write 'I believe' on my hand before every game.”
