Kenzie was born in Tucson, Arizona on March 20, 1991 this will make her 19 years old. She comes from a line of softball players. She studied at Canyon del Oro High School, in Oro Valley, Arizona where she graduated in 2009. During her time at Canyon del Oro High School she got involved in volleyball where she turned out to be pretty good, so good that she was named defensive player on one occasion. As for softball she was in the top 25 best softball players during 2007 and 2009. Before this she won a gold medal as part of the USA junior team at the 2006 National Pan American World Qualifier.
In 2007 she was chosen the Gatorade Arizona player of the year and again in 2009. In 2008 she was named Gatorade National Player of the year and also in 2009. Also in 2009, Kenzie was named Arizona Republic Player of the year and NHSCA National Player of the Year.
She chose the University of Arizona where she joined the softball team the Wildcats; and once again her awesome performances didnâ€™t go unnoticed when during the week between April 12 to April 18 she was chosen USA Softball Player of the Week by the ASA or Amateur Softball Association.
â€śIâ€™m proud to represent the University of Arizona with this special honor. This was a great weekend for us as a team,â€ť said Kenzie.
Not before recovering from a life and career threatening situation that required for her to go under three surgeries on her throwing arm, after discovering her thoracic outlet syndrome in 2007 that caused her arm to get swollen and numb, this condition could end her softball career but most importantly her life after her three surgeries, almost two weeks in the hospital and over one week in intensive care. Her coach and teammates were praying and hoping for her full recovery.
"She was forced to work hard on different pitches. She always had a great rise ball, but her drop ball has improved tremendously. â€¦ With the bat, she’s been just as impressive. She’s hitting right around .500." said Kenzieâ€™s coach Amy Swiderski.
She is recovering with the help of anti inflammatory medication and hoping to be once again not only an Arizona Wildcat Softball player, but one of the best softball pitchers the world has ever seen.
