Kumpf is the very first player in school history to record 1,000 career kills and will have the rest of the season to leave her mark on the program.

"It's exciting getting my 1,000th kill! I've been a part of this program since the beginning and to accomplish something like this for my team means the world to me." said McKenzi Kumpf.
"As McKenzi's coach, I could not be more proud of her both on and off the court. Having a player finally reach the 1,000 kill mark in our program is a really great accomplishment. McKenzi is the ultimate team player and has always been willing to do any job to help the team. It's a great accomplishment and I'm sure she's not even close to being done." comment head coach Steve Beeler.
