As holds true to the job description, life can get a bit complicated for Division 1 student-athletes.
A constant yin-and-yang balancing act plays out, where the highest of highs and the lowest of lows are experienced. But, at season’s end, a lengthy reprieve arrives, a hiatus from the early-morning lifts, late-night study sessions and long bus rides to away games.
That is, unless you’re Boston College rising junior Kenzie Kent, a phenom for the school’s lacrosse and hockey teams.
Truth be told, the Norwell, Mass., native and Noble and Greenough product doesn’t get much of a break; from September through May, there’s always a game or practice of some sorts. Kent concedes she gets tired by second semester’s tail end and switching from team to team can be mentally taxing, but, by the same token, she’s not quite a normal kid.
