Kennedy Farris to join Kansas volleyball


Kansas head volleyball coach Ray Bechard announced the addition of Kennedy Farris to the 2019 roster.

Farris, a Lansing High School graduate and Leavenworth, Kansas native, played four years for the Lions and helped Lansing to four unbeaten Kaw Valley League seasons. In her four years in the high school ranks, Farris helped tally 143 wins, while graduating with a school-record 1,222 career digs.

During her junior and senior campaigns she helped lead her team to a third-place finish in the Kansas 5A State Tournament. She also was named a three-time all-KVL selection and a four-time academic all-state honoree.

"Excited about Kennedy joining us and she will be a solid addition to the Jayhawks," Bechard said in a team release. "We are fortunate to get a player of her caliber this late and we look forward to what she brings both on-and-off the court."

Doesn't matter the sport, just love seeing local student-athletes joining the Hawks!!!

They almost always end up being the glue and the backbone of championship teams.
