During her Senior year, Kennedy took on the challenge of helping the Lovejoy Lacrosse Club launch the Lady Leopards Lacrosse program as her 2017 Senior Project. Because there was no girls’ program in Lovejoy, Kennedy played with the Allen Lady Eagles Lacrosse program since the 5th grade. She was a varsity player for three years with Allen and earned a letter (Allen) each year. Kennedy decided to skip playing lacrosse her Senior year in order to help launch the Lovejoy Girls Program. Kennedy will be attending Princeton University, where she intends to be on the pre-med track, and major in neuroscience.
