Kahn is one of 38 members named to the 2022 Victory Sports Tours/NFHCA Division I Senior Team. All five NCAA Division I regions are represented on the list of 2022 honorees. The selected student-athletes were nominated by their NFHCA member coach and were chosen based on their career accomplishments.

This year, the Division I Senior Game will take place in conjunction with the NCAA Division I Field Hockey Championship at Storrs, Conn.
Kahn becomes the sixth Mountain Hawk in program history to be named to the NFHCA Senior Game, the first goalkeeper from Lehigh to achieve this honor. This is also the first time since the 2000-2001 that Lehigh has had student-athletes named to the NFHCA Senior Game in back-to-back seasons.
Kahn has a 9-6 record in goal this season, making 90 saves and recording one shutout for a .720 save percentage.
