2009: Kay played in 12 matches and made two starts. Kay started at forward in the regular season opener against the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee on Sept. 1 and again on Oct. 21 at Wisconsin. He took a total of five shots, including three shots on goal. He played a season high 45 minutes at Connecticut on Nov. 2.
2006: Like his freshman season, Kay saw limited action as a sophomore. Unlike his freshman season, his lack of time was due to injury, illness and other setbacks that kept him from re-taking the field. While playing just four times, he scored one point recording an assist against Loyola (Ill.) (Aug. 25). He earned starts against Loyola (Ill.) and Denver (Aug. 27) and played in the next two matches, but illness slowed him down and he was unable to regain the strength to return to the lineup. He earned a medical hardship as a result, preserving his sophomore season. He did flourish for his second straight spring, showing his potential for the upcoming season.
2005: Kay saw action in half of Marquette's matches as a freshman, playing in eight of 17. He scored one goal on four shots during the year. His tally came in MU's 3-1 loss at Seton Hall (Oct. 26). In the spring, Kay blossomed, turning into a goal scoring option for Marquette.
Prior to Marquette: Kay was team captain at SPASH as a senior, earning second-team all-state honors after an 11 goal, 11 assist season. He was a two-time all-conference selection, earning player-of-the-year honors as a senior. Kay's team was conference champion his sophomore season. He tallied six goals and two assists as a junior and had five goals and three assists as a sophomore.
