Makenzie Kelley log:
High School: Lower Dauphin
Graduation Year: 2015
College Choice: Lebanon Valley College
Club Affiliation: Xtreme 2015
Major lacrosse honors: Varsity Starter (2013 and 2014)
What will you major in/study? Elementary Education/ Special Education
Why did you choose school? “When I first walked on LVC’s campus I got that feeling that I didn’t really experience at the others I visited. I knew that this was the school I wanted to be at and it was close to home so my parents could come to games. The team and coaches were also very welcoming and I have developed a great relationship with both.”
Outlook for your High School team in 2015? “We lost speed in our midfield from our graduating class. but I think that we have talent that can fill the missing shoes. We’ve been playing together for four years so I think we have a good shot at going deeper into districts this year.”
Other comments: “I would like to thank my parents and my two younger sisters for all of their support that they have provided me throughout this process, I couldn’t have made it without you. Special thanks to my sisters who practiced with me for hours on end. I would also like to thank the coaches that have helped me through it. Thanks to my club coach Mark Pinkerton and Lauren Caminiti and also coach Kolva and McBride for pushing me to always do my best. I could not have made it this far without you guys! One last thanks to all of my school teammates. Also, my Xtreme teammates, I couldn’t have made it this far without you girls!”
Other schools considered: Millersville, Misericordia
