Kennedy’s head coach Michelle Goodall commented on the strengths and struggles the team will face when playing Linn-Mar on Thursday.

“[Our biggest strength] is confidence right now,” Goodall said, “the kids are playing pretty high level ball. Serving is very strong right now and I really like what we’re doing with the offense. It’s kind of diversified.”
