Mullumbimby High School Year 12 student Krista Ruehe has been selected in the u/19 Australian Futsal Team set to tour the USA next July.

Krista was a member of the undefeated NSW u/19 team that won the National School Futsal Championships in a closely fought final against the Qld City side, in Brisbane last week.

She was also given the Most Valuable Player award for her efforts during the final.

The rising talent began playing junior football from the age of five for the Eureka and Mullumbimby Football clubs, and was also a member of the Rosebank Primary School football team that won the Small Schools State Championship, according to her mum Renate Siewert.

She began playing futsal in 2009 at Mullumbimby, and then played for the local Byron Bay Futsal Club under the coaching and guidance of Vinicius De Carvalho Leite from Just Futsal NSW.

Krista has represented the local area and school at state level in both futsal, football, and cross-country running. She was also a member of a local team of players who won the Beach Soccer Championships on the Gold Coast at Kirra Beach.

Krista recently received the Mullumbimby High School Sportsperson Award, together with Jonty Smith, at the school’s recent presentation evening.
