Margaret “Peggy” Prizer Kenny, a graduate of the Class of 1963 and a Sun, is recognized for her excellence in field hockey, basketball, and lacrosse, playing all three of these sports throughout her time at Walker’s. Peggy was President of the Athletic Board, captain of the Suns field hockey Team, captain of the varsity basketball team, and at graduation was awarded the Voorhees Cup for good sportsmanship. She was also a student coach for lacrosse. Outside of athletics, she was a leader as a prefect, and a member of the Northfield League, the Sun-Dial student newspaper, choir, glee club, and the Grapes.

After Walker’s, Peggy’s athletic focus was primarily on tennis, playing at the University of Colorado and throughout her adult life. She taught tennis at both the elementary and college levels, and started (and coached) both a girls’ and a women’s soccer program. She has played A Team tennis and on an ALTA (American Lawn Tennis Association) 5.0 team. She says, “The lessons I learned through playing sports at Walker’s have served me well, and I carry them with me today.” Peggy’s 1963 yearbook page expresses her gracious sportsmanship beautifully: “Win without boasting, lose without excuse.”
