A dedicated and hardworking player, Jennifer has played lacrosse for 12 years. Her athletic accomplishments include being named to the First Team All Ches-Mont and the Second Team All-League.

For Jennifer, the best part of playing at Kennett High School was the amazing coaching staff. “I would not be the player I am today if it weren’t for Coach Watkins and Coach Carrie,” says Jennifer.

Lacrosse is not Jennifer’s only sport, she also participates in cross country and winter track, along with being a co-founder of Kennett High School’s badminton club. She is also a member of the National Honor Society and the Athletic Representative Council.

Jennifer has not declared a major at this time, but is interested in studying biology and following a pre-med track.

“When I first started playing lacrosse, I never would have believed that I’d be signing to play in college,” Jennifer says. “I’m so excited to continue playing at American University.”

Congratulations, Jennifer!
