The take ?
It is no understatement to say that Kennedale has to be on its game. Kennedale does have some things going for it. First, Kennedale is an experience playoff program. Making it to this round is just automatically assumed each year. Second while this was a rebuilding year for Kennedale, they fought through a tough pre-district scheduled to go undefeated in district play.?
While playing in the playoffs for the Lady Kats is just another part of the season, becoming one of the final 16 in the playoffs is unique and really cuts to quality and consistency. Kennedale has the talent although young, it is the consistency that will have to be stepped up. The potential remains and so does the upset possibility.
