Newbridge Academy welcomes Jordyn MacKenzie to Female Bantam Varsity
Jordyn MacKenzie from Beaverbank, NS joins the line-up for the Female Varsity team this September.
With 4 years of hockey under her belt, Jordyn will lace up this fall to compete with the Female Varsity U14 team. MacKenzie, an assistant captain for her Valley Wild Peewee AA team, finished the season off strong collecting a provincial award for “shoot out competition” winner, and was recognized as a player that contributed most to her team during the 2016-2017 provincials. Jordyn was also selected as one of six, 2004 players to attend the HNS U16 high performance camp this summer.
“At the end of the winter season, I had the opportunity to have Jordyn on the ice with a few of her Pee Wee AA teammates and could quickly see that she had a great work ethic. Jordyn enjoyed being coached and accepted instruction very well. She demonstrated great work ethic throughout the session that day and when I had the opportunity to watch her play in game situations, I was further impressed realizing that she was the type of player that we were looking to have in this program. I’m looking forward to Jordyn joining our school and varsity hockey program in the fall.” – Paddy Flynn, Head Coach, Director of Varsity Hockey Programs, Newbridge Academy
Off ice, Jordyn enjoys playing lacrosse, soccer and paddling. Her other interests include her love of animals and has hopes of becoming a Veterinarian or Marine Biologist. She plans to attend University in Ontario or the USA with dreams of playing for Team Canada someday. Academically, Jordyn was recognized by her Principal for both math and science excellence awards. Jordyn’s commitment to learning is the continued trend of elite student-athletes Newbridge Academy supports.
When asked about committing to the team, “I am so excited to be attending Newbridge this year and meeting so many new friends, coaches, teachers and having the opportunity to travel and to build my skills with some of the best players around. I look forward to the chance to be part of such a great school.”- Jordyn
Former Coach Luke McCarthy, “Jordyn is kind, generous and one of the best teammates I have ever coached. She has everything she needs to become a dominant player moving forward. Speed, size, strength and a rocket shot.”
“This is a new chapter in Jordyn’s life that is very exciting, one that has put her closer to recognizing and living her dreams. We are so proud of her. “- Juanita & Phil MacKenzie
