First things first, I think this deserves it's own post. Just before practice started this morning in Seattle, the coaching staff named Mackenzie Beauvais-Nikl the Special Olympics Colorado team captain.
The 17-year-old is a goalie on this team, but it's clear her talents are many. Just last spring Mackenzie scored over 10 goals while also stopping every goal but one as goal keeper. And get this, Mackenzie is also involved in 6 other Special Olympic Colorado Sports including: tennis, track, basketball, softball, snowboarding and cycling.
