Dual-sport athlete Kenzie Kent knows she made the right choice when she decided to become an Eagle.
“I reached greater heights than I ever thought I could,” she says.
Kent was a stand-out competitor on one of the most elite women’s hockey programs in NCAA Division I, making her third straight Frozen Four appearance. She was the leading scorer at the NCAA championship game in women’s lacrosse in 2017, its first appearance in program history. With that feat, Kent became the eighth-leading scorer in program history (138 career points) and earned the school record for most games played (157).
Kent says that the world-class coaching from Acacia Walker-Weinstein (women’s lacrosse) and Katie Crowley (women’s hockey) as well as BC’s outstanding academic program drive excellence.
“Being surrounded by great players, great people, great students,” says Kent, “just being placed in that group makes you be better than you thought you could be.”
Her goal for this year is a national championship trophy for lacrosse, which would be the first in the program’s history.
“This is my last shot at this. I’m doing everything I can to make sure this year counts,” she says. With high-caliber mentors behind her, Kent says that the last piece of the puzzle is “instilling confidence in all my teammates.
“That’s what’s going to bring us all together to win the national championship.”
