Basketball: Lethbridge asst. coach Krista Heidinger, 34, passes away

Unfathomably sad news out of southern Alberta: Krista Heidinger, an assistant coach with the Lethbridge Pronghorns women's basketball team, died on Sunday, just four days after she and her spouse, Jared, had welcomed their third child into the world.

There are more details at Heidinger (née Robson) and Jared Heidinger, as former Pronghorns ballers, were no doubt a big part of the U of L's extended sports family. One would not presume to speak for everyone in the relatively small world of Canadian university athletics, here's hoping all concerned can summon the strength to make it through the healing.

Krista Heidinger is survived by her husband, Jared Heidinger and their three children, Jaxon (6), Grace (4) and newborn Sophie, born Aug. 26. There is more news on the U of L athletics website.
