After a year to remember for junior Kenzie Kent, the dual-sport athlete is getting what may be the biggest individual honor of her career.
The Atlantic Coast Sports Media Association, the consortium of writers covering the Atlantic Coast Conference, has selected Kent as the Female Athlete of the Year for the Atlantic Coast Conference, winning the Mary Garber Award. She joins Clemson’s Deshaun Watson, who was named the ACC Male Athlete of the Year.
Kent had a year to remember on the Heights. She became the fifteenth member of the 100 point club in women’s hockey during the 2016-17 season.
