Kilsyth juniors Bree Mackenzie and Jamie Ahale are set to tip-off their 2018/19 collegiate campaigns, with the NCAA season starting next week.
Mackenzie enters her final season with Hawai’i Pacific University, following a redshirt season in 2018/19. The fifth-year senior was named to the All-PacWest First Team in 2017, and will be looking to earn a place on the all-conference team for the third time as she enters the final chapter on what has been a stellar collegiate career to date. If Mackenzie can replicate her career numbers of 13.3 points, 2.0 assists and 1.6 steals per game, she has a chance to break the school records for career totals in each of the three categories.
Mackenzie and the Sharks open their season on November 9 when they take on Cal State – San Marcos on the road.

Ahale finished 2018 ranked 17th in the nation in three pointers made (100) – while shooting an impressive 39.8 percent from deep – with his elite shooting tenacity on the defensive end earning him a place on the All-Conference First Team.
