Position: Forward/Outside Back

Why I chose SIUE: "SIUE is the right fit for me to be able to pursue my goal of medical school while playing the sport I love at a very high level. The coaching staff was very personable, welcoming, and easy to talk to right off the bat. The campus is beautiful and a perfect size for me. I can't wait to step on the field with my new coaches and teammates and be a part of an amazing program!"
From Coach Burton: "Mackenzie has worked extremely hard to get to this point in her career and her discipline and focus are admirable. Although watching her play, her speed jumps out at you, it's her desire to continually develop as a player and work towards her goals that just might be the quality that impressed us the most in the recruiting process. Mac will be a nightmare for the opposition. And we really value the versatility she has as a player with a ton of experience playing defense and in the last year or so, showing the damage that she can do in the attack. She has great tools to be a very impactful player at the college level and the sky is the limit."
