The Boston Globe today announced that two-sport star Kenzie Kent won the “Globie” which is apparently a thing) for Best College Athlete, as well as (obviously) Female Athlete of the Year:
Congrats to #TheGlobies Best College Athlete presented by @JUSTisbetter winner @unkentrolable of @BostonCollege! https://t.co/RS9LjbyRL9 pic.twitter.com/1eUo7GOPUI— Boston Globe Events (@globeevents) November 30, 2017
Kenzie led BC Women’s Hockey to its third consecutive Frozen Four last season before the Eagles fell 1-0 to #1 Wisconsin in the waning seconds of the semifinal. She also took BC Lacrosse to the national championship game, putting up a ridiculous 10 points in the final and being honored as tournament MVP despite playing for the losing team.
For Best College Athlete, Kent beat out a slew of hockey playing nominees including Zach Aston-Reese (Northeastern). Joe Gambardella (UMass-Lowell), and Mike Vecchione (Union), plus Northeastern basketball player TJ Williams and BC football linebacker Connor Strachan.
In the Female Athlete of the Year category, Kent was selected over fellow Eagle Tatiana Cortez of BC Softball, Merrimack track & field athlete Carly Muscaro, Harvard fencer Adrienne Jarocki, and Edna Kiplagat, the winner of the Boston Marathon.
Congratulations to Kenzie, and hopefully she will lead BC to a couple big team trophies as well!
