By Kara Pokropski Wednesday, March 18, 2015 - 4:26pm
Ursuline's Kailyn Kampert is this week's WDEL High School Athlete of the Week. The junior forward helped Ursuline bring home their 15th state title with a 53-41 win over Caravel. Fresh off the court from that championship win, Kailyn is still soaking in the joy.

"There's no better feeling in the world. I love my team so much and we're like a family, so it was great."

Kampert seems to be following in the footsteps of her mother with the state titles, who happens to be a teach at the academy.

"She won two state championships at Padua and went to JMU and played. Having her as a teacher and she use to coach me before, it's great and reassuring to have her around."

What the rising senior hopes to lead her team with,

"Worth ethic. I try to work really hard in practice everyday. So I hope that carries on to them."

When asked to describe Ursuline basketball in one word, Kampert's response,

"Everything. Literally they are my family... It's such a family and I love every single girl on the team. So it's meant the world to me."

You can catch Kailyn this spring out on Servium field with a lacrosse stick at hand.
