Hello! I am Mallory Kerr, a 5'10" 150lb center back apart of the 2024 graduating class at Falmouth High School in Maine.
Academically, I've always been motivated in and drawn towards STEM subjects. Specifically in subjects surrounding biology and chemistry with a newfound interest in genetics and gene manipulation. I have always held myself to high academic standards, beginning very young as a child wanting to understand my older brother's math homework, and continuing into today with the same drive to understand as much of the world around me as I can. In college, I want to be able to prioritize academics while competing at a high level athletically.
I grew up surrounded by sports. My dad played varsity football all four years while attending the University of Pennsylvania which initially made me realize that I could do the same. With my brother's never ending support and his quiet, hard work in sports that I grew up watching, he taught me to continue working behind the scenes for what I want.
During my freshmen year, I started the season as a swing player between Junior Varsity and Varsity but then worked my way up to a starting center back position for the last half of the varsity season. Throughout my sophomore year, I started all 16 games, of which I was subbed out once. I helped contribute to my teams 5 game shutout streak in the beginning of the season, as well as our overall 14-1-1 record, the top record at my school in 9 years. After my sophomore year I was awarded with SMAA 1st Team All-Conference, SMAA 1st-Tea, All-Region, and Maine State Coaches' All-Star which motivated me to keep improving for the next season. As a junior, I was named a captain and was listed as SMAA 1st Team All-Conference and as a SMAA South All-Star after the season.
