Opponents have been trying to surround Youngsville junior Kennedy Cratty, but she’s helped to lift the Lady Eagles to four straight wins and a 4-2 Region 3 record. Cratty has scored 54 points in three wins since last Thursday, including 23 points, 14 rebounds and six steals in a 51-30 region win over Eisenhower at Eisenhower High School. Just like Ike’s Louie Head, pictured at right, Kennedy is no stranger to the Times Observer Athlete of the Week – her’s is the Female Athlete award sponsored by Little Caesars.
