Why Kelli chose North Texas: "After my first year at Mizzou, my sister and I decided that we wanted to step on the field together one last time, so we both decided to transfer back to Texas. North Texas was a perfect fit from the beginning. The coaches shared the same belief system and work ethic that Jami and I had grown up knowing. Being at UNT has given us an opportunity that we never thought was possible. Being able to play in front of our entire family has been a dream come true."
