The Salisbury native seems to rise to the top at every level of soccer she plays. As a Newburyport High athlete, she was a two-time Cape Ann League Player of the Year selection and a two-time state champion (2007, 2008). At Colgate, she emerged as the top player in the Patriot League. As a senior, she led the league in scoring with 14 goals and nine assists.
If she is able to emerge as one of the top players in the Breakers organization, she could someday play on the United States national team.
“I’m young, so I set some goals, but I don’t know what’s going to happen,” Kinter said. “It’s kind of exciting this way, but really uncertain about a lot of things.”
Kinter will take finals next week after what she calls a “laid-back semester.” Then the entire Colgate senior class will head to Myrtle Beach, S.C., for vacation, in accordance with a school tradition.
“I would say my experience at Colgate has been amazing,” Kinter said. “It turned out to be the best-case scenario. I’ve done well athletically and academically. I’ve been happy with my opportunities in and out of the classroom.”
