Kevin Pangos (’15) and Kate Pennington (’15) enjoyed a summer wedding in McCall, Idaho. “Our wedding weekend was even better than we could have imagined,” Kate shared. “Kevin and I are currently building a life in Barcelona, Spain, where he will play for FC Barcelona and I am looking for a nursing job. We are really looking forward to this new adventure as a married couple. We couldn’t be more thankful for the love and support of our Zag family. GO ZAGS!”
