Warriors give new coach first win

ADAIR — The Adair Warriors, led by first-year head coach Travis Kennedy, won their first game of the season on the road against Chelsea Tuesday, 65-49.

In a game separated by one point at the half, Kennedy said the defense of freshman guard Cody Eby had the biggest impact.

“Chelsea had a point guard that went off on us for 17 in the first half,” Kennedy said. “Eby shut the kid down in the second half a didn’t allow him to score.”

Two Warrior seniors, Brady Bradbury and Flemming Shive, had 26 points on the night, which didn’t hurt the chances for a victory.

Kennedy said winning the game, given the lack of practice time from athletes who just finished a hard-fought football season, gave his team a boost of confidence.

Kennedy has 14 years experience as an assistant coach under former Adair head coach Brad Rogers.

“I couldn’t ask for a better group of guys to give me that first win,” Kennedy said.

Adair faces Salina on the road Nov. 29, and Nowata at home Nov. 30.
