Student Athlete of the Month: Fermi’s Kennedy

Kaley has been a consistent member of the Fermi High School high honor roll, and has earned team MVP honors as the goalie for the varsity soccer squad.

How Kaley prepares for a game: Before a game, I like to talk strategy with my teammates, It’s important as a team that we talk about what needs to be done. I also like  to take the time to mentally prepare myself for the game. I like to push all thoughts to the  side, listen to some music and put all my attention and focus on the game, always putting  all my effort into warm-ups. Doing this helps me become ready for any team we face.

Why Kaley is excited for the winter season: During the winter season I can’t wait to step on the field with my teammates and be able to play against new teams that give us extra competition.

Kaley’s most memorable moment in a Falcons uniform: My most memorable moment would be my senior night game against Rockville that would qualify us for states if we won. After 80 minutes of playing we had moved to overtime, at a 1-1 tie. Just minutes into overtime we had scored placing us 2-1 over Rockville, our defense kept strong and offense never stopped pressuring. That night we earned our spot in the state tournament for the first time in three years.

Kaley’s plan for the winter season: I hope to accomplish a sense of relaxation and recognition on the field. With such a strong team like the Fermi girls soccer team, there is no other option than to strive higher as a team.

Kaley’s favorite pro athlete: My favorite pro player would be Hope Solo; she is the goal keeper for the US Women’s National Soccer Team.

Kaley’s college plans: After high school I plan on attending a four year college to study psychology, and I plan on playing soccer while in college.
