Rachel Kennedy – Wilmington College
Rachel has been a integral piece on the NOHS Volleyball team at the outside hitter position for the last four seasons. Next fall, Rachel will be attending Wilmington College to further her academic and athletic career.
The reasoning for choosing Wilmington was, “It’s a small campus and I felt comfortable when I visited. I am playing volleyball and there are new coaches looking to rebuild the program. ” While at Wilmington Rachel will be studying Sports Management.
Rachel has had a tremendous career and has earned many accolades in her time at NOHS.
