Coach's Quote
"Jenn is ready to catapult into her Junior season. I am so proud of how Jenn really challenged herself in the off-season. With the departure of Missy Beseres, Jenn is anxious to be a consistent force in the starting rotation. She has worked very hard to develop her pitches and will be critical to our success this season."
