Senior Zoe Campbell to Represent Kent Place School at National Girls & Women in Sports Day

Senior Zoe Campbell of Livingston, NJ, will represent Kent Place School at the NJSIAA National Girls & Women in Sports Day Awards during a Zoom ceremony on February 3.

No stranger to the athletic field, Zoe is a three-sport varsity athlete at Kent Place, where she plays soccer, basketball, and softball. “Zoe has been nominated as an outstanding female athlete who represents the qualities we hope that all of our student athletes strive to embody here at KPS,” said Bobbi Moran, Director of Athletics. 

“I think being a student-athlete means being dedicated,” said Zoe. “The rigorous curriculum at Kent Place requires a lot of dedication to achieve the level of excellence we all strive for. To then add 2+ hours of athletics a day on top of school responsibilities speaks to the commitment and passion we student-athletes have for our sport(s).”

Reflecting on what lessons she learned as a three-sport athlete, leadership came to mind. “You do not need to be the best player on the team to be a leader.” She added: “By pushing yourself to be better, whether that be holding yourself accountable or working tirelessly during practices and games, you ultimately encourage your teammates to do the same.”

Participation in athletics is an integral part of the overall Kent Place School experience for its students, and its athletic teams are a source of pride for the Kent Place community. Kent Place is committed to maintaining a healthy balance between athletics, academics, and cocurricular programs providing a quality competitive program for our student-athletes while encouraging students to participate in other areas of school life.
