“Kennel” is one of the Griffins’ two co-captains this year. Coach Tim Fox sounded off on his leadership.
“I’ve known and coached Sean since he was in eighth grade and he is a model athlete when it comes to heart, hustle and work ethic,” Fox said.
Kenneally, a longstick middie, has been a distrupive force on defense. Going into Wednesday’s game against Newport Harbor, he is second on the team in groundballs with 38 and second on the team in forced turnovers with 15.
“I think a big moment was when he switched from a ‘shortie’ to an LSM. He played short stick his entire youth career and when he got to high school, he picked up a long stick and has been a [GB] machine and a good force on defense ever since” Fox said.
Kenneally said he likes the team for their comradery and said that school itself had a good vibe.
“Hard work and perseverance really help out. Always look up, never keep your head down. Just keep going at it, stay gritty,” Kenneally said in regards to what he’s learned during his lacrosse journey.
