Head Coach Jennifer Patterson told the Kennedale News by email,


am proud of the girls and the season that we had. Through thick and thin, they

bonded and became a strong unit. The fact that every member of the team was

awarded an All District nod shows how well they truly performed. They not only

performed on the court, but in the classroom as well with every member of the

Varsity receiving the Academic All District award.?

?I have no doubt that our seniors are

going to be an undeniable influence on the world. They have successful futures

ahead of them. For those remaining at Kennedale, we will take the lessons

learned this year and continue to build a dominant volleyball program.
