A 5’11” forward, Lavin was another member of the England bronze-medal winning team in Melbourne who graduated to the GB national team with impressive results in the summer of 2006.

Having spent her first EBL season with the Sheffield Hatters, Lavin’s career really took off in two seasons with the Manchester Mystics in the 2005-06 and 2006-07 seasons. She also fitted in an appearance for GB at the World University Games in 2005 and, by the end of her first season with the Mystics, Lavin was an established England international and became a member of the GB team that was reformed and began play in the B Division of Eurobasket in 2006.

Lavin’s form also earned her a contract in the top division of Spanish basketball with Burgos, although she would move down to the second division halfway through that campaign and see out the year with Verona Norte. Having proved an important player for her new club, she re-signed for Verona for the 2008-09 season.

Lavin helped GB win promotion to the A Division over the 2006 and 2007 group campaigns but, tellingly, she was absent through injury in 2008 when GB slumped into the relegation competition and, although she returned for the relegation play-offs at the start of 2009, she retired from GB, and the sport, later that year.

Damian Jennings says: “Athletically, Kristy was one of the most exciting prospects we have had in the programme. An incredible athlete, she could break down her opponent one-on-one and hit the outside shot. She had the ability to change games with her athleticism and offensive qualities and was also a great team mate in the locker room.”
