Padua 360

Mackenzie S. ’22
Mackenzie, a freshman at Padua, is ready to run this new school year until the finish line. When Mackenzie witnessed the sisterhood and the love Mrs. Mann had for all her girls she immediately fell in love. She chose to attend Padua because of the amazing XC team and is currently on the team and enjoys every second of it.

She has been running for most of her life. At her old school, Holy Cross, she was the only runner on her XC team. Now that she has experienced being on Padua XC, she loves having the team to motivate her and test her ability. She plans on running both indoor and spring track as well. Mackenzie has set many goals for herself while on the team and is determined to accomplish them by the end of the XC season.

Mackenzie, describing herself as adventurous, says she hopes to go to Greece one day because her favorite movie, Mamma Mia, was based there. She also spends a lot of time at the beach. In her free time she loves to hang out with her friends and is excited to make many more during her years at Padua. She takes a variety of classes this year, ranging from World Civilizations, her favorite, to math, her least. Additionally, she likes journalism and took the class because she likes reading the fun news stories on Snapchat, and when she shadowed, her student ambassador took the class and she wanted to try it out. Although freshman year is harder than she expected, she is still excited to see what the year brings and is looking forward to the XC season, achieving her goals, and ending the season on a good run.
