Watertown-native Lauren Kelly’s hockey abilities led her to be recruited by Div. I program Northeastern, where she has become a big part of the Huskies defense.
Kelly attended the Winchendon School, where she played ice hockey, soccer and softball.
Now a sophomore, Kelly has become a playmaker for the Huskies, with 10 assists in 18 games for an improving Northeastern women’s hockey team. The Boston Globe interviewed Kelly, who said she benefited as a young player by competing with her sister Erika, who was better known as a Watertown field hockey star.
After college, she may follow the footsteps of her father and brother, both of whom are police officers. Read the Globe’s Q&A with Kelly by clicking here.
