Chapman nails it, adds polish to game

Korina Chapman is a sophomore for the Lady Saints basketball team. She is from Albuquerque, N.M. Before playing at Seward, Korina  played at Boston College, where her season was cut short due to a knee injury. While at Boston College, she played a total of 31 games as a freshman.

After she recovered from her injury, Chapman decided to leave Boston College and become a Lady Saint. Chapman is a huge part of the talented Lady Saints success this year.  She averages 11.5 points per game.

She is loved on and off the court by her teammates and coaches and always has nice things to say about others.   Chapman’s favorite activities, (when she’s not playing basketball), would be simply hanging out with her teammates and reading. Chapman loves to read everything from books to magazines.

Kyndal Davis, a freshman on the basketball team,­ says Chapman is very easy to get along with. Every day they have a daily hug which brightens their day. Davis said Chapman is “really chill, and she likes to hang out with her because they both give each other advice on life.” She is someone that everyone wants to be around, Davis said.

Chapman loves being surrounded by her friends, whether she is watching movies, just hanging out, or having a girl’s night.  Painting nails and shopping are a few of her favorite things to do with her friends.  However, she absolutely loves doing people’s hair, and creating new hair styles.

Being an athlete, people may think of her as more of a tomboy than a girlie girl.  However, there is never a time when you will not find her fingernails painted, sometimes even in her favorite color of purple.

Most of the times she tries to keep them painted using  different colors and designs, so fans and friends should always be sure to check out her nails.

She loves to shop and keep with the latest fashion. She said she could shop all day and never get tired of it. Davis says Chapman always looks cute and has great style.

What girl doesn’t like pasta?  Chapman definitely does, especially before game days to make sure she gets all the carbs she needs.

After she finishes school at Seward County, Chapman plans on becoming a social worker.

Young children have a special place in her heart and would love to help as many as she can.
