A four sport athlete, Kelsey had had a very successful athletic career to date. In addition to playing lacrosse, Kelsey has been a member of the high school’s field hockey, cross country, and track and field teams.
Kelsey’s athletic honors include being named to the Ches-Mont All-Conference field hockey team as an honorable mention in 2015, as well as being named to the Ches-Mont All-Conference lacrosse team as an honorable mention in 2016. A quick and thoughtful midfielder, Kelsey also earned a spot on the National Pennsylvania Brine Lacrosse Team, a travel team that features the top ranked high school players in the state. She was named as the lacrosse team’s captain her senior year.
Kelsey is just as much of an all-star in the classroom as she in on the field. She is a member of the National Honors Society and has earned Distinguished Honors all four years of high school.
Kelsey is honored to have had the opportunity to represent Kennett High School in a variety sports. She would like to thank all of her coaches for playing an integral part of her development as an athlete.
