“Kennedy is a total package threat. The service line, back-row defense, setting accuracy, and—her biggest area of growth—on the front row, with better blocking and an ability to dump really coming on this season. With a game on the line, I’d want the ball in Kennedy’s hands.”
Natalie Throneberry
Head Coach - head coach of Southside High
