Kennedy Davis earns all-state honors
Kennedy Davis has earned honorable mention all-state honors with Alma’s girls soccer team this season. Here’s an interview she had with High School Sports Scene Magazine:
•How happy were you with your season?
“I am very happy with how my season turned out. The team was a completely different team this year with a new coach and many new girls. Being such a young team, people had their doubts but we grew as a team tremendously throughout the season and proved what we were capable of on the field.”
“The highlight of our soccer season was the first round of districts that we played against Clare. We were down 0-2 at halftime and our team managed to pull ourselves together and have a comeback to end the game 3-2 advancing in districts.”
•What was your role?
“My role on the team, as a captain, was to push everyone to give 100 percent. No matter if it was practice or a game, I motivated the team to play their hardest. On the field, my role was to attack offensively, taking shots on goal and sending crosses in, as well as connecting passes throughout the field.”
•Your strengths as a player?
“My strengths as a player is my speed and aggressiveness. I’m willing to play physical on the field which helps me gain position on the ball.”
•How did the team do?
“The team improved greatly throughout the season. A large part of our team was made up of players who had never played soccer before. Our team increased our abilities greatly throughout the season. From our first game to our last game, we did not look like the same team.”
