Connor Kennedy (JPII ’14) led off in the second game of a doubleheader two weeks ago against the Massachusetts College of Liberal Arts, in which he has already had two hits, and ripped off a double for his 100th career hit at Massachusetts Maritime Academy.
In the next three games he banged out five more hits, including a 3-for-7 performance against Framingham State Sunday.
Kennedy, only a junior, has 105 hits in 90 games; that’s better than one hit per game.
“Determination. That’s his greatest asset,” said Kelley. “He works at the game. He gives 100 percent all the time. He has that determination to be good.”
Those qualities date to when Kennedy, who is from West Barnstable, transferred to then Pope John Paul II High School from Barnstable in his sophomore year.
