Oceanside's Grover continues to impress athletically in collegeFreshman makes all-rookie team for hoops, slugs two home runs in first softball game
Farmington — The beat goes on for reigning Courier Publications schoolgirl athlete of the year Kennadi Grover.
Now a freshman at the University of Maine in Farmington, Grover, who plays basketball and softball for the Beavers, was named to the Division III Maine Women's Basketball Coaches' Association (MWBCA) All-Rookie team.
She was named to the team along with Chandler Guerette (Husson University in Bangor), Alicia Brown (University of New England in Biddeford), Marle Curle (Bowdoin College in Brunswick), Allie Coppola (Bates College in Lewiston) and Cheyenne Malloy (Maine Maritime Academy in Castine).
Grover was fourth in scoring this season for the Beavers as she averaged 7.9 points, was third on the team in field-goal percentage (.491) and scored double-digits in 10 of 26 games played, including a season-high 21 in a contest against Lyndon State College in Lyndonville, Vt.
She also plays softball this spring for UMF and slugged two home runs in her first collegiate game on April 2 against New England College in Wenham, Mass.
Grover was a three-sport athlete for Oceanside and Georges Valley, playing soccer, basketball and softball. She was the goalie as a freshman for the 2009 state Class C champion Buccaneers, was the first 1,000-point basketball scorer in the history of Oceanside and helped guide the Mariners to their first state title in any sport last spring in Class B softball.
