Mackenzie Schick a senior at Cabrini enjoys playing three sports. This senior keeps active all year long.
She plays Volleyball- Libero, Basketball- Shooting Guard, and Softball- 3rd base.
“Spending these last four years with amazing teammates is a favorite moment,” Mackenzie said. “ Another favorite moment is blocking a girl on Gabriel Richard last year in an away basketball game at their place.”
She enjoys Government and her favorite teacher was Mr. V.
“I have had many good coaches throughout my career but my favorite has to be my fourth grade basketball coach, Coach Durant who sparked the love of basketball in me,” she said.
She has been accepted to a handful of schools but she is leaning towards Michigan State.
“I will sadly be ending my sports career this spring in high school, not competing at the next level,” she said.
“I would love to stay involved in the sports I love, hopefully coaching one day. I also hope to have a wonderful family and to leave my mark on the world.”
In the future she may choose Medicine as a profession.
“I am looking at the medical sciences, but I do not know for sure, she said. “As long as I am helping people I will be happy.”
Friends she hangs out with are mainly teammates.
“I tend to hang out with my teammates the most along with my boyfriend,” she added. “I try to be friends with everyone but outside of school and sporting events I only hang out with a few close friends.”
Her family is important to her.
“My dad, Fred Schick, and mom, Terri Renker, are my inspiration every day along with my older sister, Brooklyn who I have always looked up to,” she said.
Advice for athletes is important.
“Find the fun in the game especially when you are questioning your worth, role, and even the game itself,” she said. “Never let someone else dictate your love for the game, play because you want to compete.”
