Kristi Ulrich is in her 9th year at Schmucker as a Wellness teacher. Kristi received her education from Mishawaka High School and then attended Bethel College on a basketball scholarship. While at Bethel, Kristi played on 2 NCCAA National Championship girls basketball teams. She graduated with a degree in Sports Management, but returned to Bethel four years later and entered the Transition to Teaching Program to receive her teaching license. Her passion for teaching and basketball lead her to coach immediately after college (the 1st time). Kristi coached at her alma mater, Mishawaka, for four years and then had an opportunity to join the Schmucker family. Since then, Kristi married Jimmie, her husband in 2011 and they welcomed their daughter Avery Reice in 2013. Kristi is entering her 7th year as the Head Girls Basketball Coach at Penn. Her teams have won 6 straight NIC championships and made it to the state finals twice. The team includes many former Spartans, so come and support PGBB this season! Other than her husband, daughter and basketball, Kristi enjoys spending time with her family, working out, enjoying the outdoors and baking.
