Siblings stand out in sports, studies

(Continued)

Katie’s award was no surprise to Rachel.

“She couldn’t possibly be a better role model for me,” Rachel said. “I joke with her all the time that she’s perfect, and she gets really irritated at me for it, but everybody knows it. She taught me how to be a good teammate before anything about being a better player, and she’s the hardest working person I’ve ever known in the classroom.”

The four-time Academic All-Big Ten honoree is currently taking her love of education to the audience of her future profession. After she wraps up an eight-week stint at an elementary school in Lafayette, the family consumer sciences major will put in two months at Plainfield High School.

“After that I’ll enjoy my first summer of real life and hopefully get a job on the Westside,” Katie said.

Meanwhile, Kendall is locked into his junior season at Wright State, where it took a while for the 2011 AHS grad to get acclimated to Division I hoops.

“The first thing you notice is the speed of the game,” Kendall said. “It took me most of my freshman year to adjust, and once I did, I really started focusing on defense. From there I’ve tried to develop my offensive game and help there wherever I can.”

So far this season, Kendall’s averaging 5.4 points and 2.9 rebounds in 25 minutes per contest for the Raiders, who are tied for fourth place in the Horizon League.

A superb student as well, the biomedical engineering major has a lot of future options to consider.

“I’m still trying to decide if I want to go to medical school or pharmacy school, get my master’s, I’m not sure,” he said.

One choice could be to find a grad school near the future Florida home of good friend and former Oriole Patrick Rodgers, who’ll begin his professional golf odyssey after he finishes at Stanford in the spring.
