This Hersey girls basketball win, 52-38 over Prospect, was for Patti Kennedy. As she stood at half court before the game, Kennedy was remembered for her 19 seasons as Hersey's girls athletic director. After assistant principal of student activities John Novak and Hersey girls basketball coach Mary Fendley spoke, the retiring Kennedy took the microphone on Friday night in the Hersey Carter Gymnasium.
