"After a rocky start to the semester, Simone achieved her highest GPA of her IU career this fall," said Lorian Price, IU Academic Advisor. "She also emerged as a big contributor for her team on the basketball court, and spent her free time mentoring elementary students who struggle in school. The fall 2012 semester was a semester of fortitude and growth for Simone, not only as a student-athlete, but as a young adult."
Kennedy, a native of Indianapolis, played in six games at linebacker and on special teams. He recorded three tackles and was an Academic All-Big Ten selection. Kennedy is majoring in Psychology.
