Morgan and Alyson Kennedy, Classen SAS girls basketball: The Kennedy sisters were preparing to help lead Classen SAS to a Class 4A state basketball tournament run before it was canceled due to the coronavirus pandemic. This season, Classen SAS finished with a 23-3 record, the second best in Class 4A where the twins played in major roles. Morgan was a starter and averaged 6.3 points per game while Alyson was the sixth man and averaged 4.3 points. Over their career, they recorded 102 wins and 15 losses as members of the basketball team, earning a state tournament berth in three out of four seasons. The sisters were named to The Oklahoman’s Little All-City honorable mention roster in 2019 and 2018. They have both committed to play basketball at Bates College in Lewiston, Maine.
