Speed and quick hands helped Kenchen share Daily Star Player of the Year honors in girls basketball with Stamford’s Davis in 2001. Three times Kenchen earned Daily Star First Team honors in basketball and she was a four-time Delaware League all-star.
Kenchen went to play for Fulton Montgomery Community College and helped that school to a 60-8 record in two years. She became the first FMCC player to score 1,000 points.
As a senior, she was named the NJCAA Division III Region III tournament MVP and then voted an all-tournament selection after helping FMCC to a fourth-place finish in the NJCAA Division III tournament.
A 1976 graduate, Davie helped start WCDO in 1982 and established the local radio station as a premier place to hear local sports programming.
Davie, who graduated from South Carolina in 1980 with a degree in broadcast journalism, has won two New York state broadcasting awards for his work at WCDO. He still covers boys and girls basketball games for the station, including this past weekend’s Midstate Athletic Conference boys and girls championship games at Oneonta State.
