Mustang senior Kenzie Sessions is gearing up to help lead her squad to the Class 6A postseason in the coming weeks.
Sessions helped lead the Broncos to their second straight district championship with a 14-0 mark against District 4 teams. The utility outfielder went 2-for-4 in the team’s final district game at Jenks, helping spur a 12-1 victory. She also cranked out three hits in an 18-0 win over Midwest City on Senior Night.

We stepped up, carried the team, and led even if something didn’t go right.
