Kennedy McDonald is entering her second year as assistant volleyball coach at Regent. Coach McDonald returned to Regent volleyball after coaching the fifth grade team in 2014. She played club volleyball for seven years and played for two years at Bishop Kelley High School. She was the head coach for SWAT 14s Volleyball in the 2019-2020 season.
Coach McDonald joined the Regent coaching staff after she graduated from Saint Louis University in May 2019. She is grateful for the opportunity to coach, because she remembers the positive influence so many of her coaches had on her in her middle school and high school years, and she hopes to be Christ to her players the same way those coaches were to her.
When she is not coaching, Coach McDonald is a full-time youth minister and children’s ministry director at the Church of Saint Mary in Tulsa. Kennedy loves being a wife to her husband Patrick and a mom to their new baby boy Stanley.
