KHQA STUDENT ATHLETE OF THE WEEK PRESENTED BY PETERS HEATING AND AIR, SUBWAY, AND CELL TECH
Class Rank: 1st in her Senior Class
College: Lindenwood (Basketball)
Intended Major: Accounting
Awards: Two-time All State Honoree in Basketball. First Team All State in Softball. Illinois State Scholar
She may be the most talented area basketball prospect of the last two decades...not to have ever won a Player of the Year award.
But those in and around her star studded program can tell you for reason's far beyond basketball, Quincy Notre Dame's loss next year is clearly Lindenwood University's gain.
Kassidy Gengenbacher: "I'm definitely looking forward to the challenges I'll face at Lindenwood whether its academically, or athletically, or spiritually. I know that being away from my family will definitely be a challenge just because I have grown up so close to my family. And here at Quincy Notre Dame we've had a small school and the teachers are always so willing to help. So I am definitely looking forward to the challenges I have to face but I am ready to take them on and I am looking forward to it."
History dictates that if you present Kassidy Gengenbacher with an opportunity, she will maximize it; the rare, almost too good to be true combination of a valedictorian candidate, two time All State Basketball Player, and two time and counting All State Softball star who has proven that prioritizing excellence doesn't have to be a compromise....
