“Kelsey is a special player and deserves this type of recognition with the performance she had this past fall season,” said 19th-year head coach Todd Dyer '93. “She'd also be the first to give credit to her teammates for their hard work and support, which has enabled her to have so much individual success. An added bonus is that she's still capable of so much more as she heads into her senior year and I know she's eager to lead this team.”
