Athlete Spotlight with Star Lacrosse Player Erin Kenedy
Thanks for being on the blog, Erin. Could you tell us a bit more about yourself?
I'm 16 year old, I love to hang out with friends and shop. My favorite class subject is math and I enjoy food (haha).
How did you get into lacrosse?
I started playing in 6th grade because my older sisters played and wanted me to get into the sport. Although I didn't get serious in the sport until the beginning of high school.
I know you run cross country and that your mom is a serious runner and qualified for the Boston Marathon. Could you see yourself doing that?
No. I only do cross-country to stay in shape. (haha) I don't see myself running a marathon for multiple reasons including the fact that I don't enjoy running long distances that much.
What are you favorite practices and why?
I like our practices generally when we scrimmage. I feel like it brings out a great competitive side out of everyone and you feel like it's game time. Depending on the team I'm on, I'm generally a leader although when I am on higher teams I sometimes follow.
What is your favorite book? And do you read sporty girl books?
My favorite book is the Hunger Games Series. I haven't seen Catching Fire yet, but I'm dying to.
I don't really read sporty books, as I tend to read action books. The last book I read was The Boy Who Harnessed the Wind.
I haven't read that yet, but have heard great things about it. Good luck this season and thanks again for being a part of Sporty Girl Books!
