Student Athlete of the Week: Kenna DeLancey

(Comments from Kenna DeLancey, Kim DeLancey and Matt Carpenter).

Kenna DeLancey is a different type of student athelete. Not only does the senior play both volleyball and softball at Ritchie County high school, but she excels at both. DeLancey was named All-State for volleyball last season, and All-State for softball each of her first three years of high school; she was also named State Softball Player of the Year in 2014.

Fresh off of knotching her 1500th kill for the AA Rebels this past weekend, it is easy to see where DeLancey gets her athleticism. Her mother is the assistant coach of the Rebels volleyball team. Her older sister, Allison DeLancey was also a standout at Ritchie County, going All-State for volleyball all four years of high school, and was also awarded State Softball Player of the Year. Along with being a standout athlete, it is no secret that Kenna has a good head on her shoulders as well.

As DeLancey wraps up her final year at Ritchie County, she is also planning to put down both the softball and volleyball, as well. She will head to WVU in the fall of 2016 to study pediatric nursing. Until then, DeLancey will pursue state tournament appearances for both of her teams.
