Senior has busy spring competing in PEISAA sports

KENSINGTON, P.E.I. —

It has been a busy spring for Lexie Murphy with the Kensington Intermediate-Senior High School (KISH) athletic program.

The 18-year-old daughter of Kim and Bob Murphy of Kensington, who returned to KISH in early March after attending school and playing hockey at Ridley College in St. Catharines, Ont., has been selected as the school’s Greco Pizza/Capt. Sub student-athlete of the month.
The Grade 12 student advanced to the P.E.I. School Athletic Association senior badminton championships in singles competition. She also pitches for the Kinkora Regional High School softball team and will compete in track and field, where her events include relay, long jump and shot put.

“Lexie is a fierce and tenacious competitor in all sports that she participates in,” said KISH badminton coach Richard Younker. “She is a great overall athlete, who works hard at practice and is very coachable.”

Lexie has also represented P.E.I. at two sets of Canada Games. She played hockey in 2019 and competed in golf in 2017.
Following graduation from high school in June, Lexie plans to study environmental science at university.
