Mackenzie has also earned Academic All-BIG EAST honors during her time on the Hilltop and will graduate in May. Let’s go In the Huddle with Mackenzie!
Why did you choose to come to Georgetown?
I chose Georgetown because it had the perfect balance between academics and athletics. Georgetown is a university that truly values being both a student and an athlete while upholding Jesuit traditions. I also sensed the immense school spirit at Georgetown the moment I walked on campus for the first time. This sense of family has proved true and I would never choose to be at any other school.
What has been one of your team goals this season?
One of my team goals for this year is to build a strong sense of community among the team. We have four freshmen this year which is a relatively large number considering the size of the women’s golf team. It is important for our players at every class level to interact and unite under shared goals and visions to set the stage for a great season.
How do you give 110% for Georgetown?
One example of me giving 110% is my involvement with extra-curriculars at Georgetown. I am involved with several clubs on campus and have leadership roles in two of them. I am particularly involved with the Catholic Daughters of the Americas as a board member and also do community service with the group each semester as a way to give back to the homeless and hungry in DC.
What would you like to say to Georgetown Athletics donors?
I would like to thank each and every donor for their continuous support of Georgetown Athletics. I am incredibly blessed to be at a university that has so many supporters and wants our athletic programs to reach their full potential. Go Hoyas!
