If you were told you had to live the rest of your life as an animal what animal would you be and why? “I would be a cat because they have 9 lives (winky face)”
“It is not uncommon to see Kennedy sprint end to end. She is a driving force on the transition either bringing the ball up the field or re-defending all the way back down to the 8 meter. She leads by example, determined to get the draw and create assists for others. Her quick reaction time makes her the leading player on Corona Del Mar in successful ground balls. Kennedy is a fast player with strong drive to be an impact player on the field. And that she is.” – Corona Del Mar Coach, Aly Simons
