In his freshman year, the team finished a disappointing 0-6 in regular season meets. Kennan’s leadership contributed to the team’s continuous improvement over the seasons that followed.

Kennan wrapped up his senior year XC season with a 21st place finish at NXR Northwest, and a 10th place finish at Nike BorderClash 17 in a time of 15:52.1.
In track, Kennan focused his efforts on the 1600m and the 3200m. Freshman season bests of 4:32.4 and 9:47.4 dropped year-over-year to 4:17.47 and 9:13.98, earning the #7 and #1 positions on the Issaquah All-Time Best lists. In the 1600m, he qualified to KingCo and Bi-Districts in his sophomore, junior, and senior years. In the 3200, he qualified to KingCo all four years, competed at Bi-Districts as an alternate in his sophomore year, and qualified to Bi-Districts in his junior and senior years.
During his senior year, Kennan achieved a national qualifying time of 8:36.72 in the 3000m at the UW High School Invitational, allowing him to race the 2 mile at the New Balance National Indoor Championships in NYC. At Nationals, he placed 16th in an Issaquah School Record time of 9:13.81 (9:10.6 – 3200m equivalent) . To cap off his senior year and his time with Issaquah Boys Track & Field, Kennan, along with Jason Crandall, Luke George, and Jacob Brueckman achieved the school record in the 4x800m Relay in a time of 7:57.1.
