Glenvar's Kennedy to Gators a Family Tradition

Posted: Updated:

   Ben Kennedy was a repeat VHSL Group 2A State Champion in the 100m Butterfly and 100m Backstroke this weekend in Christiansburg. But it's not what he's accomplished, but where he's headed that has everybody at the pool buzzing. Kennedy will be swimming next year at the University of Florida for one of the premier swim programs in the country. The Gators have put more than 85 swimmers into the summer Olympics since 1968. Kennedy's parents are both University of Florida products, and his father Patrick is a former SEC swimming of the year--and 1984 United States Olympian.
