Marist junior guard Trinasia Kennedy announced that she is transfering to George Mason University for the 2022-23 season.
Kennedy missed the non-conference portion of the 2021-22 campaign, coming back in December for Marist’s MAAC opener. She struggled from the field, shooting 33 percent on her way to 10.6 points per game.
She played in 63 games in her career for the Red Foxes, coming onto campus in the fall of 2019 and quickly established herself as a terrific defender. She started all 22 games in Marist’s NCAA Tournament campaign in 2021, finishing with 9.7 points per contest.
Kennedy overcame a series of tragedies in her pre-college years to have a successful high school career at Susquehanna Valley, winning a New York State Championship in her junior year.
A Binghamton native, Kennedy was later joined by her Southern Tier friends Zaria Shazer and Kiara Fisher. This past season, Kennedy stepped into a leadership role and was one of the most vocal players on the team.
She opts to take a step up from MAAC play leaving for George Mason, a school that competes in the Atlantic 10. The Patriots finished this past season 10-19 overall and 3-12 in conference play.
Kennedy became one of the most popular figures on Marist’s campus in her three years in Poughkeepsie, but will take advantage of the transfer portal to find greener pastures at George Mason.
