Getting to Know the 2017-18 Lady Eagles: Allie Kennedy

Oct. 6, 2017

HATTIESBURG, Miss. – Freshman Allie Kennedy comes to Southern Miss from Red Bay, Ala.

“Allie is a scoring point guard that possesses toughness,” said Coach Joye Lee-McNelis “She will bring a wealth of success from her high school and club team to our program. Her ability to find a way to ‘get it done’ is fun to watch. A small town girl with an attitude to make a difference is welcomed into our program.”

At Red Bay High School Kennedy won the 2014-15 2A State Championship and, along with current teammate Kennedy Gavin, won the 2015 AAU D1 National Championship with the 2017 Alabama Starz.

“I decided to come to Southern Miss because I love Coach McNelis and the rest of the coaching staff,” Kennedy said. “Good things are going to happen here. I thought it’d also be good to go somewhere that I knew someone. Kennedy and I have become a lot closer since coming here.”

Kennedy averaged 18 points, five rebounds and three assists a game in high final season at Red Bay High School.
