Favorite Moment in the Game:
My favorite lacrosse moment was traveling to Japan with my teammates at BU! We stayed in Japan for 10 days and while we were there we played against the Japanese National Team and college teams in Japan! It was an amazing experience and it was so fun to travel with my teammates.
Mackenzie lives in Boston, MA with her teammates from BU and works in finance. She loves to attend workout classes, go to the beach and spend time with her family on Lake Winnipesaukee.
