Coach JR Payne states, “Kennedy is fantastic, there is a lot of things to love about her. As a young player she is just a sophomore the point guard position is a difficult position to play”.

Kennedy has an extreme passion for basketball, and does anything she can to keep improving her game. When Kennedy isn’t found in class or playing in a basketball game, she is in the gym practicing on her shooting.

This year she earned her second first team all PAC 12 award. Her hard work and dedication to this sport really shows in her performances.
