Kenzie Palmer – Athlete of the Week

Posted: Wednesday, April 24, 2019 9:00 pm

Even though beach volleyball is not the first thing that comes to mind when thinking about Flagstaff, Coconino High School’s beach volleyball team is dominating. Senior co-captain, Kenzie Palmer, is a multi-sport athlete.

Palmer rotates between indoor and beach volleyball. She said there is no better feeling than digging her toes into that warm sand. Head coach, Scott Dendy, said her mindset is what makes her an effective captain. Dendy also said her attitude always stands out.

Palmer does not let a shorter stature stand in the way of her drive and persistence in the game. Dendy said Palmer still plays at a high level. She has over 500 digs and almost 150 kills for her partner, Brooke Parker. Parker said they can put up a blocking defense rather than letting them hit straight down.

When Palmer is not playing volleyball, she likes to ride horses. She enjoys most activities that involve the outdoors. Palmer hopes she can end her high school career at the playoffs.
