This time, Nobles brought home the New England championship trophy. Kelly was awarded the Nobles Senior Bowl after that championship season. She was voted First Team All-League her sophomore, junior, and senior seasons.

In hockey, Kelly set the school record with 236 career points, and she was an All-League selection all four years of her career. She also participated in Olympic festivals during high school. Kelly was the captain at Nobles both her junior and senior seasons. In her final year, she was named the Most Valuable Player in the ISL, leading the Nobles team to an 18-2 record and a league championship. At the end of that season, Kelly received the Newell Cup.

In the spring, Kelly took to the lacrosse field, where she was a three-time All-League selection, a two-time All-American and the captain of the Nobles team in her senior year. She was named All-New England and led the ISL in scoring both her junior and senior years, with 58 goals and 61 goals respectively. Her All-New England team won the National Championship in 1997. Not surprisingly, Kelly won the Nobles Shield in 1998.

Kelly went on to the University of New Hampshire where, in her freshman season, she was named UNH’s rookie of the year and earned ECAC all-rookie honors in hockey. She also played varsity lacrosse. After her sophomore year, she transferred to Boston College to continue her hockey career. She was named All-Conference in the ECAC, led her team in scoring for two seasons and captained the team her senior year. She earned the Boston College Leadership Award “given to an outstanding leader, athlete, student and citizen who best exemplifies the pursuit of excellence as a role model for other students.”
