Hockey can be very demanding of someones body and then to jump right into lacrosse, well that shows passion for how much she truly loves these sports.

She always stays in prolific shape and manages to perform at her best on every play. When Kenzie is asked why play two sports her response is that she just loves being around her teammates and she loves being in season.

While balancing two sports she can’t forget about her academics.
