Sounds like a great shooter with a solid family tree. Her older sister Kristi Kingma is a two-time Washington player of the year at U-Dub. Older brother plays at U of Oregon. Here's an old article (http://seattletimes.nwsource.com/html/highschoolsports/2004125657_kingmas150.html) on her sister's recruitment and the family background.
Looks like we're really recruiting the Pacific Northwest hard.

Along with Mikayla Reese, Kelli was recently named an All-American for the class of 2014 in the PeachStateHoops.com Elite Basketball Academy camp (http://peachstatehoops.com/?p=camps&subcatlink=42). They have a brief write-up (http://www.peachstatehoops.com/?p=joppremaccess&sp=featurestories&story=JLH091611) of the camp as well.

Kelli Kingma (http://espn.go.com/high-school/girls-basketball/recruiting/player/_/id/128718/kelli-kingma) (Mill Creek, Wash.), Jackson: Less than a month ago, Kingma was thousands of miles from home, in Atlanta, at the EBA All-American camp. She must have brought back a second checked bag full of swagger, or at least a carry-on full of courage to try new things. While not always resulting in a smart play, it's clear she is asserting herself on the offensive end, showing more breakdown moves with her improving handle. She continues to live up to family tradition of perimeter shooting excellence. Outside of mastering the role of the scoring-point guard, mostly shot-selection, the 5-9 sophomore needs to learn to veer defenders on the drive as she ends up on the floor more often than a player with her ability should.
